Praise for No More Mr Nice Chelsea

WINNER Amused Moose Award for Best Debut
SHORTLISTED Comedian's Choice Award for Best Show

 

BEST JOKES OF THE FRINGE 
The Times (featured twice)
The Telegraph

 

★★★★.5  The Sunday Post 

"Packed with gags at a great hit rate, even in the more serious moments, this is an assured debut from a performer who is surely destined for the top.”
 

★★★★.5  The Phoenix Remix

"You cannot help but really like her.... One people are going to be talking about"

★★★★  The Telegraph

“There’s a sharp mind behind the sweet exterior. As her writing credits on Mock the Week suggest, she knows how to craft a well-made one-liner....Birkby wins the audience’s affection so thoroughly....The Fringe’s meekest “bad bitch”. 

★★★★  The Scotsman

“A hugely promising and already accomplished stand-up, surely destined for greater things”

★★★★  Fest

“A seriously promising show - deceptively smart, tightly structured, and delivered with chatty charm... Sharply serious but still somehow funny"
 

★★★★  ThreeWeeks

“Peppered with good gags and a wide spectrum of pop-culture references, Birkby is a winsome and funny stage presence.  
There are some very *good* flights of whimsy in Birkby’s material, and delivery which brings the audience along willingly on an occasionally dark but consistently entertaining journey."

★★★★  Ed Fringe Review

“Both naughty and nice” “Has the feel of a conversation with friends."
 

★★★★  RGM

“Chelsea’s debut hour covers some deep subjects, mental health, sex and drugs. She says she no longer wants to be the the nice guy, but her genial, considerate (blessing the audience when they sneeze) presence tells us otherwise. Chelsea’s a natural and delivered a show that you’d expect for someone who has been playing Edinburgh for years."
 

★★★★  Entertainment Now

"The show is brilliantly funny, and Chelsea Birkby has the material and demeanour of a comedian who could make it all the way to the top.Chelsea approaches some of the worst points of her life with self-deprecating yet upbeat humour, and the optimistic way.
Her new comedic style has been established as a sort of polite rock star. It’s certainly unusual, but it’s hilarious."

★★★★  Mervyn Stutter's Pick of the Fringe

“She can make a joke out of anything… She’s a charming comedian. The new and rebranded Chelsea focuses on sex, drugs and rock and roll in her set but in a hilariously off meta way”  Deadline News

“Playful, self-effacing, Chelsea Birkby’s future looks bright" Wee Review

"Both touching and funny, Chelsea cooked up a good, intelligent set – her polished writing skills are laudable, a series of clever jokes built chiefly upon a solid foundation of audience interaction.”
“both touching & funny” Mumble

“We were so enthralled, the hour zoomed by very quickly. She was relaxed, charming and confident, the stories were well constructed and cheekily disclosed with one or two little surprises in the tales." Squirrel Comedy

“Birkby shines when it comes to one-liners and quick gag” “a brilliant career awaits” Broadway Baby

As heard on BBC Radio 5 Live, mentioned on The Today Programme BBC Radio 4, as heard on BC Radio Scotland
