REVIEWS

‘Inspired, profane, and impressively thorough’.

(Shortlist Magazine)

‘Excruciatingly insightful works’.

(What’s On London)

‘A deceptively underwhelming stage presence; her visceral, earthy, and fluent performance was one of the highlights of my evening’.

(For Farrago Zoo Awards)

Zoo Review

‘Superb. ‘’Roleplay’’ on a woman seeking to fill awkward silence with sex, was funny and lovely, ‘‘come wander in my jungle of distractions’’ indeed.

Her other poems from an ‘’accidental series about this fucking guy’’ were equally funny and heartfelt. Her joyous turns of phrase equally good for comedy and pathos.’ (For Farrago National Poetry Day Slam)

National Poetry Day Review

Amy McAllister’s “She’s Over” was certainly a different take on moralising; a rallying cry to replace pornography’s seedy underbelly with another kind of passion: that of the “intense determination” of the August riot looters, whose “spunk is on our side” rather than against.

UK Slam Individuals Review

UK Slam Teams Review

‘Very amusing and fantastic flow’
‘Absolutely superb!’
‘Really cool and excellent delivery’
‘Spot on funny words’
‘Very well delivered with cheeky confidence’
(For Open Arts Cafe)
