‘This Exciting young northern comic has a flair for the grotesque and a wonderful feel for language’ The Guardian
‘Diane Morgan has the talent to break free from those double-act shackles and carve out a substantial stand-up career of her own’ The Scotsman
‘A nice line in dark storytelling’ Independant
‘Sharp writing and an endearing delivery’ Chortle
‘Break-ups, singledom, and wedding etiquette may not be wholly original territory for a female stand-up, but Diane Morgan does it better than most. Runner-up in the 2006 Funny Women awards, Morgan quit her job packing worming tablets in a factory, and a chip shop called ‘Le Chipperie’ to do stand up. If that’s not reason enough to see her, I don’t know what is.’ Short List :10 Best New Comedians
