Delightfully saucy, her friendly and confident stage presence, combined with a killer wit, an infectious giggle and some devastating one-liners make her a comedic force to be reckoned with.
Warm and welcoming but also slightly scary with that delightfully saucy and spiky edge, her bold, no nonsense attitude strikes a perfect pitch with men and women alike.
