" half mania, half Victoria Wood. Her sprawling stand-up is endearing and complex. Hilarious…She has quietly reinvented the confessional stand-up "

★★★★★ Neurodiverse Review

" Delightful…wonderful…understated excellence…with a sense of the joyful absurdity of life. Entirely charming. "

★★★★★ One4Review

" Much of Trigger Warning is heartbreaking and sobering…her astute humour elevating it to anecdotal art that humanises the horror and is all the more affecting for it. "

★★★★ Chortle

" If all you want is a hilarious show, performed by an exquisitely expressive comedian, with an ease of making even the darkest moments in her mental health history funny, then Harriet Dyer is definitely your person! If you don’t fight the fun, it will no doubt find you! It oozes out of Harriet Dyer and infects us all! "
