Louise Leigh Identifiable

Funny Women Regional Finalist and badly-behaved mother of two Louise Leigh should probably be delousing her kids instead of gallivanting off to Edinburgh to appear in the festival.

Navigating her path through the choppy seas of the "midlife, sniping and logistics" phase of marriage, via modern parenting and how to shave your legs like you're in an advert, Louise is "Consistently funny and unafraid to experiment" Wil Hodgson

"Great performance, great confidence, great jokes." Gary Delaney

"Witty, imaginative and more than a little risque" The Scotsman

Hers is a safe and familiar style, but Identifiable is none the worse for being, well, identifiable. Leigh’s a polished, sparky performer, able to energise a room, even a sweaty Counting House Loft at 10.30 in the morning, with routines on motherhood, self-image and knocking on a bit.

One is what she perceives to be the perfect mother and woman, a vlogger she calls Candida McHubris, with an irritatingly just-so life. We’ve already learned from a hilarious opening sequence what Leigh would like to do to people who call their children Clytemnestra, so we know there’s a tension between her envy and hatred of a woman like that.
