Avital Ash Workshops Her Suicide Note Review
"In her brutally frank Edinburgh debut, Avital Ash confesses she’s dogged by abject feelings of hating herself. Yet it’s hard to envisage anyone emerging from this profoundly affecting hour with anything but admiration for a smart, poetic, witty woman able to convert harrowing first-hand experiences into a show that's both heart-rending and funny, albeit bleakly so."
Edinburgh Festival Fringe comedy review: Avital Ash
"With some justification, snobbery has arisen in comedy about shows where stand-ups surgically probe and exploit their deep-seated trauma, sacrificing laughs for tears as they push audiences through the wringer. But blithely dismissing this as performer self-therapy, or as a genre, risks throwing the baby out with the bath water and overlooking exceptionally funny hours like Avital Ash's Fringe debut, which strikes a deft balance between the blackest humour and pathos."

Comedian Avital Ash Talks The “Weird Nostalgia” Of Her Pandemic-Era Web Series ‘Antisocial Distance’
"As widespread vaccinations begin to signal the beginning of the end for the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, what happens to Zoom? The virtual meeting platform (and others like it) has sustained the continuity of business, education, journalism, entertainment, and more for over a year now, but as we finally get the go-ahead to unmask and gather in greater numbers once again, is the age of omnipresent digital communication also coming to a close?"
