Angela Barnes


"brilliantly funny”
Sarah Millican
"She’s just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic” The Guardian
"Angela Barnes is the best mainstream female comedian I’ve seen since Sarah Millican… I can’t be any clearer than that can I?”
Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard critic
"a beautifully paced performance that was aided by the consistent quality of her jokes, many of which showed a great skill with self-deprecation.” Chortle
"Barnes mixes warm autobiographical material with plenty of strong jokes”
The Guardian
