Review by Graeme Strachan

Katherine Ryan returns to the Fringe with a show about happiness and looking at the bright side of life instead of letting things get on top of you, looking into sadness and calamity with a dose of comedy humour.

With asides into popular culture and reality TV, she's witty, sharp and bright. A broad and easy comedy that will never upset anyone in the audience but instead, more often than not, brings a wry smile. Stepping through her experiences of living in London as a single mother, through her experiences as a comedian as well as countless comments on popular culture and reality TV.

Ryan's comedy and crowd interaction has grown since her last Fringe appearance as she is a happily comfortable performer who obviously enjoys her craft. Nature's Candy is a wonderfully easy-going show that never taxes the audience or outstays its welcome.
