“He is distinguishably good.. His delivery is immaculate, ultra-fast but never unintelligible.

“Colin Murphy has a laugh-per-minute rating to which many higher-profile comics can only aspire. He is endlessly, genuinely, extremely funny. See it now because it is hard to believe he could get much better.” – The Scotsman
