I'm Not Taylor Swift
If I were a stand-up comic, I would say that I went to see this show because I have something in common with the performer, because we both aren’t Taylor Swift. That’s why I am a reviewer instead.
Actually I saw this show because I have seen Anjali Sandhu in action before and admire her work. I’d never seen a full act, though, and the opportunity was too good to miss. Sandhu uses a sharp, whiplash humour that provokes thought as much as laughter, like all the great stand-up comedians, of which there are very few, in my book. She has great material, a unique perspective, and a great sense of pace and timing.
Normally I am not a big fan of stand-up — a miss is as good as a mile – but even if you and I have this in common, you should still see this show.
