"Disgusting, naughty and downright shameless are probably the only words to describe how this conglomerate of first-rate comedians operate." - Nic Brookland, Keeping Up With NZ
"So fresh and so new! These are the main adjectives I would use when put on the spot to describe this year’s talent that ushers us into this years NZ International Comedy Festival." - Monique Perera, Mac and Mae
"...even with a bold title like “The 5 Star Comedy Preview”, such that would naturally set anyone’s expectations to the roof, I was blown away with the quality of comedy." - Jenanne Burnell, The Speakeasy
