REVIEWS
“Aggie began charming her way into the hearts of her audience even before opening curtain… a funny enough dose of reality to make you reconcile yourself to being a ‘fallible meatbag'” 4 STARS – CBC

“Lesiak is particularly gifted with the physical aspects of her own performance… the most thought-provoking moment for me answered a question it would never occur to me to ask.”
– THE CHARLEBOIS POST

“a whirlwind one-woman performance… Lesiak’s physical malleability and quick wit are highlighted as she expertly combines sex and relationship advice… hilariously candid and refreshingly honest… a show unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.” – Ottawa Fully Fringed (Apt 613)

“daring… performed excellently” – Ottawa Tonite

“Hilariously harsh honesty as Aggie the Advice Diva gives you the answers you need, but maybe not ready for… Ask Aggie will be a night you’ll be thinking about long after it’s finished.” – Production Ottawa

“witty, insightful, and pretty damn funny… unarguably charming, beautiful and enigmatic, she seductively consoles you at the same time as she’s crushing your dreams, and even leaves you with what sounds to me like honest-to-God good advice from time to time.” – The Visitorium
