Blissfully well written, Neill may be first and foremost a comedian, but his observations are as acute as any novelist’s. Sweet, sharp and very funny.” – The Times

Like a rapid-fire English David Sedaris, Chris Neill tells his funny tales of rubbish dates. Every word is perfectly chosen and perfectly used; actually, he has something of Alan Bennett, too.” – The Observer

A polished raconteur, Neill’s schtick is punctuated with classic lines.” – Metro

An expert storyteller with split-second comic timing. Both acidic and disarmingly sweet, he has an immaculate turn of phrase.” – Independent on Sunday
