Through her straight-talking, unabashed style, she's indisputably garnered global adoration. Indeed, on her way to becoming womans' answer to Eddie Murphy. If you haven't experienced her infamous wit it's unfortunate. What's also unfortunate is her one-off Melbourne standup show's already sold out. Damn. Blast.
