"The format is a sure-fire winner... allowed for spontaneous jokes, constant banter and a bit of sledging across the stage and the mix of characters made for a richer show than a regular stand-up gig... Gave the audience an insight into the mind of a joker" (Adelaide Advertiser)

“A-Grade talent... indulging in repartee and delivering quick-witted responses” (The Age)

“The panel dynamic and the personalities of the comedians involved (many of which are high calibre) makes for a different show every night” (Beat)

“really great line ups... great moments to be witnessed... really big laughs” (The Groggy Squirrel)
