ED2012 Comedy Review: James Redmond and Ellie Taylor – Free Festival (James Redmond and Ellie Taylor)

By | Published on Thursday 23 August 2012

Though her co-stand-up James Redmond was otherwise engaged (“auditioning for ‘Total Wipeout’ or something”) and replaced temporarily by Australian Benny Boot, Ellie Taylor proved to be sparkling and energetic company, managing to come across as both poised and goofy in her half hour set. The former face of Matalan (2004) discussed her time as an overly smiley model; the horrors of girls’ night out Facebook albums, and having to move back in with her parents, ending with an excellent extended metaphor about a javelin. Even if not all her material was laugh-out-loud funny, Taylor is a naturally likeable performer with the potential to go on to really great things.

Laughing Horse @ Espionage, 2-26 Aug (not 13), 12.00pm.
