Original, dark, effortless.

‘A dark-edged set full of disdain for her daughter. Yet it never seems nasty, more a wry confessional about her own lack of maternal instinct. Such unflinching approach to the ‘bad mum’ persona is admirable, and she delivers with an appealing coolness… top comic in waiting’ (Chortle)
“Top Comic in waiting” Steve Bennett Chortle
“You should see Mellor on the telly before very long” Northern Soul
“Really well-realised character comedy. I mean, dark, can’t-see-the-joins, funny as hell character comedy. I expect her to be unaffordable shortly.” Kill For A Seat
“A natural performer with refreshingly original material” Rob Riley, IWantAComedyNight.com
“Nando’s New Comedian Of The Year 2013 Penella Mellor displays great timing and poise that would show up many a seasoned professional, her dark material is delivered with a glint in her eye which endears this smiling assassin to the audience right from the start.” Southport Comedy Festival.
