So charming you want to take him home to mother immediately!” The Age, Melbourne

Clever, observant and high on the laughs.” Beat Magazine, Melbourne

The material is sparklingly original- often breaking genre conventions for a splash in the shallows of literary criticism and poetic philosophy- well structured, energetically performed and peppered with lacerating little one liners and funny jingles.” – 3Weeks – August 2009
