who else could joke about tampons and periods and make it seem funny?
Catherine Cookson was always writing period pieces without getting many laughs so it's clearly a more difficult enterprise than it seems.
It's a popular subject in some quarters, however: I once knew a man who owned a well-known club in Manchester and he told me every woman comedian he ever employed talked about almost nothing else.
Mind you, he also said none of them was even remotely funny so it appears Aisling does indeed have a genuine talent for comedy, having succeeded where so many of her fore-runners have failed.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: she and Kathryn Ryan are the top two women stand-up comedians in Britain - by a very, very long way.
I've also pointed out that neither she nor Kathryn is British.
Still, we can always look back on the glory days of British female stand-up comedy: Victoria Wood - there was never a more talented female stand-up before her and there hasn't been one since.
So take that, Aisling and Kathryn!
