"An ode to staring into the void and pulling a funny face, a challenge the endlessly charming Brasier was seemingly made for.  A standing ovation is as inevitable as death, with everyone present seemingly wiping an eye and glad to be alive. Hard to ask for much more than that” – Chortle (★★★★★)

"Audience wowed by miracle of a show. In a word: wow” – Sydney Morning Herald (★★★★★)
