‘Boothby Graffoe is rare among singer-songwriters in that he’s not intensively twee and annoying.’ - The Sunday Times
‘Boothby Graffoe really is a master of the comic song, and this new album demonstrates his range, from the plain silly to great stories in song through to numbers that you laugh at with a bit of a lump in your throat.’ - The British Theatre Guide
"Right now, the Iranian Djalili is probably one of the most subversive, let alone funniest, comedians around" - The Guardian
"To carve yourself out a career as the thinking person's Iranian comedian in this political climate takes a fine brain and a masterful way with the audience. There is no question that Omid Djalili possesses both" - The Sunday Times
