"Cruttenden takes his own world of the cosy English middle classes, rummages around it and pulls out some remarkably dark humour that he finds lurking at the bottom."
"He even cracked up the band who by this point had seen the show at least three times."
"He had the crowd roaring."
The Hollywood Reporter
"He takes the personal, the surreal, the ridiculous and the political, and whizzes them into a delicious comedy smoothie that is sweet with a hint of sharpness. And it's really good for you."
"An hour of comedy that can't fail to delight."
