Critic Reviews

"The writing is as fresh as a cowslip, as sharp as a kitchen-knife, and sometimes as coarse as a fishwife." (The Telegraph)

Laura Solon talking

This was so funny I just keep playing it over and over again. It is hilarious, clever, well performed and unique. Fantastic.

Dazzlingly Funny!

Here is a production from a wonderful new British comedienne that has to make you laugh! Laura Solon and her troupe do sketches of off-the-wall British characters that will have you howling. Her British "china lion" lady is the most brilliant comic creation I've heard in years. You will love this one if you enjoy any kind of British humor.

Comic Genius

Laura Solon's Radio 4 show, available here as the complete series is nothing short of comic genius.



A fast-paced sketch show, the characters are never introduced, they just 'are'. Many of them are on-off soundbites, but there are many recurring characters, the greatest of which is 'the woman in the house' who is a mad old German woman who obviously has lots of people workign for her, but her only friend is 'China Lion'. She appears every episode, and every episode has a different story of how she came to acquire China Lion.



There is also the stately home owner with a Red Setter called Lindy whose estate is overrun with rats.



I defy you to listen to more than one episode without losing just a little bit of wee.
