The moment you enter the room, you know this is someone special. Ashley Storrie has a natural rapport with the quickly filling room, any form of ‘heckles’ are simply incorporated and launched back. No holds barred, everything ripped out and open, Ashley treats everything as up for discussion. Every joke lands, some are a little too niche and local for a few in the crowd, but there isn’t a flat delivery.
Whether it be dinosaur erotica, nearly sleeping with a Tory or just bantering with the audience, Other Erotica reveals why Ashley Storrie is a magnificently promising act.
A more linear structure may be needed; the penultimate story punches the crowd into tears and roars of laughter, but the finale leaves a little to be desired. Reorganised and structured; Other Erotica could easily rob the limelight from any other show.
