“This show is a huge amount of fun and an impressive display of Jupitus’ skills.”
“I left an hour later with further admiration of the man’s talents and his willingness to try something different…It is an experience that should not be missed.”
“Jupitus is undoubtedly an excellent improviser and there is a great deal of pleasure to be had from watching his quick wit at work.”
