Bec Hill has many fears in life: the greatest and most irrational being her audience – she need not be so scared, as she’s bloody bonzer! Hill doesn’t just stand in front of a microphone; she engages with the audience and makes good use of an interactive flip-chat art in delivering her witty anecdotes. The Australian YouTube sensation is not afraid to tell ridiculously embarrassing stories and it is this that makes her an instant hit with the crowd. Taking a deeper look at the art of stand-up and heckling, Hill points out in her show that compliments are way more powerful than insults, so I will say this: she is absolutely fabulous and well worth a stalk on Twitter.
