Reliably informed

Come on, admit it: you’ve watched at least one episode of Snog, Marry, Avoid (and, quite possibly, you’ve felt quite guilty for actually loving every trashy minute of it). Ellie Taylor took over as the host of the show some time ago, bringing a bit of wit and an added bit of cheer to the otherwise grim task of getting some rather orange people to wipe off the fake tan and peel off the tarantula lashes.

It’s easy to forget, though, that Taylor is a quick-witted comedienne in her own right, a fact that has earned her spots on other shows such as 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Fake Reaction. She’s now bringing her latest show Elliementary (see what she did there?) to Stockton’s Arc, which is filled with self-awareness, snappy one-liners and relatable comedy. It’s difficult to believe this is Taylor’s debut stand-up show, thanks to her being such a staple on our TV screens, but as she takes on the hard-hitting issues of love, life and Matalan, it’s almost a certainty that this won’t be her last run either.

Ellie Taylor comes to Stockton’s Arc on Saturday 2nd May.
