he is a thinking mans comedian and an astute one at that. -Tom Alvarez of the Examiner
a playful, provocative stand-up routine -The DCist
wry observations about how hes treated in America as an immigrant, though he uses where he was born and what he looks like as a jumping-off point, not a crutch -IndyStar
touchy subjects are addressed with a personal approach from lifelong experience -Ben Daniels of the DC Metro Theater Arts
