Despite being blonde and glamorous, Aussie ‘’Scotty’’ spent most of her set endearingly picking out her own shortcomings (mostly to do with age, her insecurities about stand-up, and of course, her regrets in life), and ridiculing them. The set was, however, accessible to every audience member, not just those experiencing similar issues. Extremely likeable, she countered her self-deprecation with her confident wittiness, interacting with us with the kind of sincerity you only get from a well-seasoned comedian. Expertly weaving successful hooks in and out of stories to keep us chuckling, she is the kind of comedian whose jokes you want to take home and repeat to your friends. She’s one of a kind!
