A selection of the funny stuff




Debra-Jane Appelby does it again! Great review in The Mag


"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!"



(page 7!)



"Hands down the funniest female comedian I have ever seen. A no-nonsense Yorkshire lass, Debra climbed on to the stage and was blunt and unapologetic in her approach from the offset. I would even go as far to say that Debra, along with Richard Herring, is one of my favourite comedy acts out of those who have climbed the Circle stage since Final Friday began a year ago", Worksop Guardian - Feb-2008



"razor sharp…never misses a beat", ScotsGay - Sep-2007


"had that magical spontaneous quality to her comedy, delivering piss funny material with all the charisma of a Peter Kay. She has true funny bones and oozed laughs from her every line and her every look - one to keep a close eye on in our never ending search for comedy stars of tomorrow", Shane Allen, Commissioning Editor of Comedy at Channel 4 - Feb-2005




"intelligent and original", Leicester Mercury
