“SEE IT. DON’T MISS IT! Australia’s Trent Baumann creates a unique, quirky world. It’s 21st century vaudeville with a Post Modern twist. Baumann is one of a kind and the show is what every performer in this particular genre aspires to. A huge reveal at the end will fill you with joy and laughter. I’d see it twice but would feel greedy depriving someone else of the great pleasure. Oh, what the heck, I’m going to see it again! ★★★★” -Vancouver Courier

“Situationist heart-throb Birdmann delivers chic subversion in a suit. Nonetheless, he is funny. This local performer is one of an admirable few who is willing the bloody demise of orthodox comedy. It’s invigorating to see such a messy triumph. ★★★★” – Helen Razer, The Age
