Open/closeReviews and Quotations

2017 - Broadway Baby - 4 Star “Have a bite to eat and take a seat – you're in for a treat…. A simple concept, but highly effective and entertaining, it was a far better use of my time than seeking out an overcrowded café for lunch.
4 stars

2013 - Broadway Baby - 4 Star “The Best Of Edinburgh Showcase Show is a phenomenal grab bag; a side-splitting buffet of talent, a revolving door of hand-picked comics from multiple styles of comedy including stand-up, improve and sketch….. as a platform for up-and-coming talent this is of incredible value and a sure-fire hit”
