“Totally seduces us… A special kind of theatre that might even be the origin of a new genre called  “serious stand-up of the feel good kind”.  Very special indeed. “ –Capital Critics Circle, Ottawa

“This is my favourite show of 2013 to date. Bruce is really engaging. He channelled TJ Dawe a bit as he wove the parts of his story together in his own way. And the painting at the end was terrific.”
– Audience Review of Assassinating Thomson in TO

And…the one somewhat critical review received a triumphant rebuttal from another writer with the same publication!
“A masterful storyteller!”
