  • Published Reviews

    "Knife-edge wit... Jesse Kellerman's dynamic comedy views the lofty tenets of Yankee culture through the wrong end of the telescope. The effect reduces Uncle Sam to dwarf-life proportions and the audience to tears of laughter. Brilliantly executed... slicker than Seinfeld and twice as funny... cultural satire for connoisseurs."

    The Scotsman

    "Drawing on the best techniques of a long line of comic genius from the Goons to the Pythons, this fast-moving series of six madly funny sketches is brilliant and sophisticated off-the-wall comedy at its very best... A couple of the vignettes are close to the best comedy I have ever seen. I still ache from laughing."
