You know when a friend tells you a story and it goes quiet before some bold soul says ‘I think you had to be there’?

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

That was Joanna Neary in the Latitude literature tent on Saturday night.

As the rain poured outside, the comedian started with a bad French impersonation in a blonde wig.

First we were confused and thought her quirky start would transform into belly-aching laughter.

But then she took her dress off to reveal a flesh-coloured one-piece and proceeded to perform an interpretative dance to her husband’s out of tune voice singing a Miley Cyrus song.

It was awkward, and despite the heavy downpour, people starting leaving.

Stand-up comedy always struck me as having a hefty element of risk.

Make us laugh - or stand in silence.

Joanna’s final poem about art school did make me smile, I just wished it had been for longer.
