Ashley Storrie:- Hysterical 5***** - One4Review
one4review | On 15, Aug 2019
It’s hard to come to terms with the fact that Ashley Storrie has not been on the comedy scene for very long in real terms, okay a venture into it when she was barely a teenager and of course with her mother a stalwart she has been in the environment since, so I suppose it isn’t hard to understand why Ashley exudes all the skills, total confidence, has stage presence and a wicked turn in material.
She is on stage from the very start, welcoming her crowd, directing them to seats, chatting away making everyone at home before we get to the meat of her show, and it is a sumptuous feast.
Ms Storrie’s material is wide ranging, explaining the derivation of her show title, her family, the new dog, thinking she had serious health issues, visits to GP, porn watching, being turned on by the weird, Twitter trolls all give her topics to showcase her excellent writing and comedic skills, something that is grasped with both hands and served to a enthusiastic packed out house.
Her career is going pretty well. A regular radio show, a recommissioning of a TV series she co-presents, and of course playing sold out Fringe shows point to a bright future for this talented Glaswegian. Oh and how does she create those noises used to enhance her closing routine.
Being an unticketed Free Festival show the queues build up long before start time. Get there early to ensure a seat, you should not miss out on this hour of top quality comedy.
