"A wonderful duo who swing from joke to joke without missing a beat.. the best show I've seen this fringe"

Adelaide Advertiser

"One of the funniest and most nimble-footed pieces of theatre you could hope to see.. the sheer exuberant energy, momentum and invention of the show makes it one of the most outrageously funny hours imaginable"

"Off-the-wall, zany, crazy, very funny.. two comic geniuses"
Glam Adelaide

"Dan Lees and Neil Frost are fast becoming fringe favourites"

The Skinny
"very cleverly observed"

“One of the best shows I’ve seen this year…top class.”
