Leslie Berman of The SWLA Times writes, "Kober is one of the most talented comics of our time. I have been betting on her to find her niche and go national since the first time I saw her. I thought: 'She's got to be our 21st Century Lucille Ball,' and that's no exaggeration. If you're twenty years younger than me, think hipper Tracey Ullman."
