TV Review: Riot Girls

Some of the best moments were when the public were totally blindsided. At one point the foursome set up a stall - the "Fannispa" - in a shopping centre offering alternative beauty products.

TV review: Riot Girls

Serious points about gender politics were made in a style that melded Trigger Happy TV with Smack the Pony, but it was only half funny.

Carol Midgley, The Times, 11th May 2018

The threat of hidden-camera pranks is one black mark against this comedy pilot, while sketches exploring "issues" such as the gender pay gap and public transport manspreading sound worryingly worthy. Still, the talent of these young comics may just win out. The fearless foursome includes stand-up Sophie Duker, ex-teacher Jen Wakefield, Cam Spence, who made the award-winning short film Polly, and Grace "daughter of Alastair" Campbell. Could it be Smack The Pony 2018? As long as funny doesn't lose out to topical.

Grace Campbell talks about why they made Riot Girls

Riot Girls is a 'feminist prank show' - how often have you seen those three words in the same sentence in the TV schedules? Not long ago, the word 'feminist' would have ensured we'd never even make it to a commissioning editor, let alone get the green light.
