Reviews from Edinburgh Fringe, Soho Theatre and Norwegian Science Week
‘If the show was peer-reviewed, it would get full marks.’ (Fest)
★★★★★ ’Scientifically verifiable songs and statistically significant laughter… she delights the audience with her pitch-perfect humour… Hugely entertaining, clever comedy at its best’ (The Skinny)
‘Your toes will tap as your sides are splitting’ (Metro)
‘An all-round smartypants, Arney is on a one-woman, almost Renaissance-like mission to reunite her two passions of music and science… a collage of geekily themed projections and songs… the confidence and clarity of Arney’s performance (both spoken and sung) are exceptional. Comedy for your inner mathematician?’ (Daily Telegraph)
★★★★ ‘Lots of distinctive laughs … an intelligent mixture of her now trademark song, gags and science all bound up in a stylish package… Classy stuff’ (Chortle)
‘In Voice of an Angle, Arney proves she is both funny and clever… Betraying any lingering stereotype of the shy, über-bookish geek, Arney is very at home with a busy crowd and her loose chatting and affable self-deprecation recalls similar speccy-nerds, Richard Wiseman and Jon Ronson. It’s heartening to see yet another stand-up join the ranks of those who prefer to display intelligence rather than low-rent prejudice on their sleeve.’ (Scotsman)
