Allyson has refined her decidedly rare style of comedy, one in which her girl-next-door demeanor plays in contrast to material that’s entirely unafraid to go to awkward, adult or challenging places. But even at it’s most biting, Smith’s comedy is a tent big enough for everyone in her audience, no matter their age, sex or preferred level of alcohol consumption. In fact, it’s the rare Smith fan that doesn’t leave her show with some small sense of déjà vu, like they’ve known her for years.
