"A sweet-faced cherub with dark eyes that promise all manner of chaos... Kreisler changes the pace with a slightly demented, extremely animated set that attacks everything... The other comics crane their necks to see the fireworks, grinning broadly. Piraro breaks into applause."
- San Francisco Chronicle
"A welcome reminder of a time when comedy cut a lot closer to the issues of the day than most comics now dare."
- Dallas Morning News
"Critic's Choice "
