“She doesn’t laugh much, but you will. A proper, smart, confident, point-and-shoot comic who knows who and what she is and gives you an hour of entertainment telling you about it. Hannah comes to us this year packing two shows, her stand-up and an hour about the Virgin. Not many of them on the Fringe.” – One of the Scotsman’s Comedies to Catch at Edinburgh
‘Get him on Shooting Stars – Robert White’s show is a jaw-dropping riot. ….. the mix of lewd innuendo, cheesy jokes, music hall songs played on a knackered keyboard and sound-effects games makes for a side-splitting hour.’ The List – Four stars ****
‘Delivering a mixture of stand up, songs, props and audience interaction, Robert White tries hard – and spectacularly succeeds ….. never seems to fail to provoke laughter’ Three weeks – Four stars ****
‘….. highly impressive, weirdly exciting, audacious hour ….. an unembarassable love of innuendo, musical pastiche, and a dash of unrequited poignancy……. he’s a frighteningly good performer …. His camp, musicality and relentlessness are perfect.’ Edinburghisfunny – Four stars ****
