About me

Here are some nice things that people have said:

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.


Barnes mixes warm autobiographical material with plenty of strong jokes

The Guardian
