Mandy Knight is much more than just another stand up comic. There’s no denying that her material and energetic delivery are refreshing in the extreme, bright lights in an otherwise often dull and predictable comedy world.
Mandy’s success and growing popularity stem largely from her warm stage persona but it is ultimately her originality which sets her aside from the ‘also rans’. She is character actress extraordinaire as she recently proved to sell out houses at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe. Her show, ‘Some Of My Best Friends Are Ginger’ has critics and audiences alike gasping for more. Along with her director and co-writer Paul McVeigh, she created a comedy stage show which gave hope to all fans of the comic genre. Razor sharp wit and vibrant characterisations were skilfully woven together in one of the finest and most avant garde shows to hit Edinburgh for years.
A virtuoso mimic
A tightly packed hour of hard-hitting laughs… this is the kind of late night show that makes the Fringe such a successful round-the-clock event
Her role plays impress… Knight is best in caricature speeding out one liners
