‘DAISY Donovan is the funniest woman on TV right now.

Louise Theroux

We can say that with great confidence since Daisy Donovan is the only woman who consistently appears on terrestrial TV as a comic performer.

Sadly, Daisy is also the unfunniest comedic female performer on TV. It’s a double-edged sword for Daisy.

Daisy’s trick is to do what Louis Theroux does when he interviews people in left of centre businesses and lifestyles. And that’s it.

But whereas Louis seems to actually engage the people he talks to, Daisy just sniggers at them.

All the audience has to believe is that Daisy is superior in every way to everyone she meets. To facilitate this flight of fancy, she goes to America.

Tonight we just get to cringe as Daisy does amateur night at New York’s Apollo theatre. We are meant to laugh at the poor saps who parade themselves in the misguided belief that they are talented.

It’s the night when the biggest loser wins. Daisy enters stage right. And, you guessed it, she wins hands down.’
