“Jesus Christ, King of Comedy is every bit as irreverent as the title would have you believe and the production’s calculated lack of polish only enhances the humor. Seeing a blatantly artificial beard on a woman playing a man is always good for a laugh." ~ Robert Trussell, KC Star
"This show not only was enjoyable, but had me clutching-my-sides-laughing!" ~ ajennings, KC Stage
"Irreverent, logical, and totally unapologetic." ~ Rabid Reviewer, KC Stage
