"Highlight from Howlers included Debra-Jane Appelby, who is one of the funniest female comics I have ever seen! Talking about her roots, her family, the riots and youth today she had the audience in her hand for the entirety of her short set, ending on a joke about her being called 'Bat-nan'... I'm not giving anything else away, go see her now!", The Mag
"the very assured Debra-Jane Appleby, whose wicked take on modern life rates a full 12-tog and allowed us to nestle in duck-down", Latest.co.uk
