Relentlessly hilarious! Truly one of the best shows I've ever seen. Was crying from laughter at one point. So so funny! Incredible performance & sharp writing. A fun satirical take on a type of girl we've all met at some point in our lives. ... full review

Impeccably written parody of the self-indulgent one-woman show. Thoughtful, smart, and satirical, yet accessible. Highly recommended!... full review

This is the best show I have ever seen at Fringe, ever. Creator, writer, star Amy Bury offers up a character we all love to hate but with a charm, wit, and self-awareness that is as compassionate as possible for a totally spoiled brat of a character. Amy makes it hard not to relate to Naomi in some way, while also seeing how totally absurd she is, stretching the scenes to a hilarious height. I'm pretty sure there were a total of 5 out of 45 minutes where I wasn't laughing hysterically and that was really just to take a breath or because Amy was setting us up to knock us down in the knees again, laughing at Naomi and our own ridiculous selves. This show is truth. Naked truth (SPOILER). ... full review

This was hands-down one of the funniest comedic performances (live or otherwise) I've ever seen. Right from the get-go, you're plunged into laughter. It manages to be silly, yet grounded in reality. This satirical portrayal of Naomi (an entitled, accountability-averse wannabe actress) was smartly written, perfectly executed and just down-right hilarious. I found myself doubled over in laughter too many times to count. The "one-person show" format was really the perfect medium for this story to be told, since it truly allowed you to see Naomi's perspective on other people in her life. Hearing her truly absurd, skewed perception of others' actions and words made this so incredible. It was the best 45 min. delve into the hilarity of Naomi'... full review

Very solid show. Never slowed down, fantastic writing and directing. Such a relief to see a one person show that wasnt boring or completely self centered. Highly recommend going to see Amy Bury, she is incredibly talented and funny as F!... full review
