Harriet Kemsley missed out on the #metoo movement because she had lost her phone, and now she’s expressing herself and dancing out her own story, making you laugh along the way.

In a Cornell University study a groups of women rated another fictional woman, Joan, as emotionally unstable, less competent and more unfriendly after being told she had had numerous sexual partners – Well, Harriet relates and now she’s using Slutty Joan to shame slut shaming, with much applaud and great hilarity from all of the sexes present.

Now a familiar face at Edinburgh Fringe, this year Kemsley uses comedy to have her say in an important conversation. In a packed out venue in the VooDoo rooms, she attracts a young that she does well to relate to, and sometimes pick on.

Her energetic stage presence remains the same; her girlish charm and ludicrous storytelling is still at the forefront of her comedy but Kemsley’s act has taken it up a notch, this year it’s personal, and she’s better than ever.

I would recommend this to anyone, apart from my grandmother. She definitely shouldn’t go.
