"Deceptively timid comedienne whose shy wit masks a razor edge humour. An iron fist inside a velvet glove."
"She has terrific material. Lots of people can rant effectively on stage, but well-thought out, witty lines like hers are a rarity."
BEN ELTON Sunday Times
"She"s clever on stage and she has a lot more bite than you first expect. Hattie reminds me of those James Bond sexy villains. Right when it looks like she"s about to kiss you, Hattie drops a tarantula down your pants".
