Lolly Adefope is a versatile and gifted character comic who on stage displayed her capacity for silly voices.  I have seen her perform at Always Be Comedy on four occasions to date where each time she has gained more confidence and was hugely entertaining.  The room and audience also gave her the faultless platform for her gift for portraying extremely accurate and funny comic personalities.

Adefope returned to Always Be Comedy for an Edinburgh preview show in May 2018.  As I watched, she was massively entertaining delivering work-in-progress showcase for her gift of razor-sharp characterisation.  Although there is bleakness, her characters are very humorous and are insanely overblown, while blandly familiar.  As a preview of her new Edinburgh show, Adefope is immensely impressive to watch.

I was very glad to see Adefope as a guest with Brett Goldstein for his Films To Be Buried With podcast live at the National Film Theatre in February 2019.  The entertaining evening provided some inspiring film choices whilst Adefope looked back over her life and career.  She proved to be an excellent guest providing quick, witty and engaging answers.
