At the start of her show Smith warns her audience that it isn’t so much a stand-up comedy show, more a story about how she became a comedian. While this could indicate that you were about to be severely let down, the opposite couldn’t be more true. Smith tells a hilarious tale of growing up, of finding yourself and overcoming obstacles. It is witty, heartfelt and engaging with a strong overall message of pursuing your own happiness and holding onto your dreams. Morven Smith is an admirable, instantly likeable comedian that one can easily identify with, and you’re likely to leave this show with a happy feeling inside you that will last all day.
