This Is It is bold and ambitious – and also very funny…An exciting, urgent and relevant comedian.
Chortle ★★★★ (on Laura Davis: If This Is It)
Every – EVERY – word is vigorously crafted…this is laughter that takes power away from the darkness…Laura Davis is IT and more.
Time Out ★★★★ (on Laura Davis: If This is It)
Decidedly defiant and damn funny. The inimitable Davis might despair, but the good news is she will not be stopped.
The Age ★★★★ (on Laura Davis: If This Is It)
A different kind of provocative… Smart, challenging, ambitious, playful and funny.
Genuinely brilliant stand-up.
An hour with Laura Davis leaves you feeling uplifted, somewhat bewildered and utterly amazed by such blistering talent.
Time Out ★★★★
An ingeniously constructed shaggy dog story which, for all its playful nonsense, will be best remembered for its unexpected moments of emotional clarity.
Fest Magazine (ref. Better Dead Than A Coward) ★★★★
A lot of laughs from this rising stand-up star.
The List ★★★★
A beautiful, expressive show.
Fest Magazine (ref. Ghost Machine) ★★★★
…extraordinary stand-up that squeezes your heart until you feel the blood surging through your body.
The Age ★★★★.5
Impossible not to laugh. Everyone left on a high.
Herald Sun ★★★★★
This is when the real magic begins; Davis flexes her improv muscles and comfortably lets things loosen up before bringing things home with genuine heart. Last year, Davis earned her status as a cult favourite; this year shows why she won’t remain an underground name for much longer.
Time Out ★★★★
The performance itself is an act of defiance…one of the more fascinating shows at the festival.
This is more than straight stand up. This is a performance. This is an experience. A bloody spectacular one… Davis doesn’t own the stage. She owns the room.
