Hilarious.
5 November 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

There is no limit to this woman's talent!! Political satire seems pretty much a thing of the past, but with all that's happening in Westminster, it shouldn't be. The wonderfully versatile Ullman shows her versatility performing a well known range of stars. Some of the best include Nicola Sturgeon, her almost Bond villain recreation of Sturgeon is hilarious, with wee Marie in toe. Her Jeremy Corbyn has been a revelation, the makeup is utterly incredible, you'd have a job to see it wasn't him. I personally love the little office shared by the two Liberal Democrats, so funny. My personal favourite is Chancellor Merkel, her beige babe, and her Theresa May is great too, she has the awkwardness down to a T. More please. Tracy if you're reading this please attempt a Boris Johnson!

Love it. 9/10
