The Wee Review ★★★★★
The man is clearly talented, and after comedy awards and various TV appearances, has rightfully acquired a following…The sky really is the limit for Kearns now.
Chortle ★★★★ (4.5 stars)
Now this is how you do absurd comedy… a bold, hilarious debut… he has forged comedy gold.
The Scotsman ★★★★
Alive in the room, ad-libbing to the audience’s reaction, Kearns is hugely impressive. Pacing the hour capably, he endears with the knowing acknowledgement that this playful weirdness is how he makes his living.
Fest Mag ★★★★
Kearns draws you into his strange, slightly dissatisfied but sighingly beautiful little world, once again creating a lovely hour of deceptively low-key humour. The bittersweet yet strangely warm feeling will stay with you as you wend your way into the evening.
