'Cal McCrystal has had another bumper year as a director and Stiff, in collaboration with Spymonkey, has been one of his crowning glories…. Seems like Cal McCrystal can't direct a show without it turning into a hit'
'This is quite simply the best, the most hilarious show seen on the fringe for many, many years. It cannot be missed.'
'Under McCrystal's expert guidance, theirs is disciplined indulgence of the highest order. I nearly died laughing'

'This is a dead funny, quick witted show. You'll weep, but only with laughter. A dead cert killer hit.'
Lynn Gardner, The Guardian
'They break the moulds with as much refreshing originality as Not The Nine or Fawlty Towers did in their day'
