Kathryn Bendall, Second Banana, Comedy on theRox “Emily is a brilliant storyteller and I had the opportunity to see her last show at this years Adelaide Fringte Festival. Her show moved me to Tears, laughter and poignant; a reflective and hilarious journey of her total re-invention. She has a great talent for humour, theatre and just plain old belly laughing funniness. A talent to watch!” June 30, 2010
