Ellie's first foray into the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is certainly a treat. You may recognise this Essex girl from popular TV shows such as
The hour equates to a frank and funny ride through her world and what it's like at thirty years old.
Her material is mostly clean, insightful and self-mocking. She's also very down to earth. Further into the show she strays into the crude, and whilst this is a weaker part of the show it is brief. She talks all things Ellie, including modelling for Matalan and Greek yoghurt companies, the effects of jäger bombs compared to vodka, female sexuality, standing behind big things and her 'arch nemesis' nephew. She showed a silly side with her drunken Kate Middleton and Keira Knightley impressions as well as her observations about engagements.
The women in the audience laughed nodded their heads in assent at a lot of her jokes. Whilst this show is largely structured for a female audience, the men in the crowd seemed to enjoy her chatter too.
Quick witted and bright eyed, she delivers her material with a humorous blend of attitude and drama. The hour equates to a frank and funny ride through her world and what it's like at thirty years old. Ellie is relatable, bubbly and welcoming in a way that only a practiced TV host can be. She's the kind of girl you want to be your pal. Her show may be early in the day, but Ellie has hit the festival at just the right time.
