PERFORMANCE REVIEW QUOTES

“A supremely skillful performer and
a fine actor...he reaches levels
which no other comics have
matched at this Fringe.”
—Edinburgh Festival review, The
Stage

“...an extremely sharp satirist,
David Tabatsky is a clown satirizing
an entertainer who would like to be
an acrobat who is really a reborn
Dadaist.”
Cologne Stadtanzeiger

“A skilled juggler...an effervescent
comedian...Tabatsky doesn’t joke,
he tells stories, like the ‘wild and
crazy guy’ Steve Martin, with a
deeper meaning like George Carlin
and a dry Jewish humor like Woody
Allen.”
Berliner Morgenpost

“...an Oedipus drama Woody Allen
himself could not have directed any
better.”
Berliner Zeitung

“...always a very sharp observer.”
Liberation

“He generally delights the audience
with his vulnerable charm and
audacity.”
The Village Voice

“...full of perpetual movement, he
held a celebration onstage. When
Tabatsky explores social taboos,
the laughter is likely to stick in your
throat. His often times very dark
character and milieu studies were
the highlight of the weekend.”
—International Comedy Festival
review, Germany
