“barnstormer of a Fringe debut. It speaks to a lot of the themes of her luminously intelligent set, which tackles hot topics like gender and toxic masculinity in a calm and, crucially, hilarious way… In short, I adored this… this is certainly comedy that packs a punch.”
Gwendolyn Smith, The i ★★★★★

“one of our most compelling young comics… a first show that was worth waiting for.”
Brian Logan, The Guardian ★★★★

“hilarious… for all her delectably fast-thinking self-assurance, this is a first show: it goes off like a rocket… She’ll go far.”
Dominic Maxwell, The Times ★★★★

“Chloe Petts is in full rising-star mode… winningly sharp… a voice like hers is needed in the mainstream”
Tim Harding, The Telegraph ★★★★

“Petts is clearly a rising star whose name will soon be in lights.”
Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard ★★★★

“it’ll be tough to match this astonishingly assured debut from Petts… You’ll learn things, but you’ll laugh even more.”
Sharon Lougher, Metro ★★★★
