See what they are saying about Glorious acts at the 2012 Festival Fringe

Phil Nichol **** (The List) 22/8

Nick Helm 'Nick Helm 'Hairy, sweaty and bearded, Nick Helm uses these winning attributes to great comic effect. He has a powerful presence and knows how to keep an audience involved in his slightly surreal world of war and laughter.  ****' (Ed fest Magazine) 21/8

Nick Helm 'orchestrated to perfection' ***** (Fringebiscuit) 20/8

Ian Smith and Tom Toal 'The joy and the curse of Free Fringe shows has to be enduring the worst ones until you find the best. Ian Smith and Tom Toal are definitely in the latter camp.' ***** (Three Weeks) 20/8

Mark Little 'This is a wonderful hour...passionate, political and stupidly funny all at the one time...Go and laugh yourself smart. **** (Kate Copstick, The Scotsman) 20/8

Phil Nichol  'pure comedy gold' (The Herald) 15/8

Phil Nichol  'packed to the limit with funnies, the audience literally getting sore from laughing so much at his material and his antics' ****(One4review) 

Nick Helm 'an anarchic, hilarious hour from an anarchic, hilarious comic' **** (Fest Magazine)

Nick Helm 'a high-octane, brilliantly silly hour with tons of big laughs throughout.' **** (Time Out) 12/8

Pat Burtscher 'really funny and clever comic.' (Broadway Baby) 12/8

Nick Helm 'Helm has burst up through comedy's rank in the past three years with beautifully overwrought pomp and rage, littered with foul-mouthed self loathing. Last year, he was nominated for a Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award; this year, he's playing to a huge room filled with expectant newcomers. He rises to the occasion magnificently - in the same way a steam locomotive spinning slowly sideways and grinding through a student-union bar can be magnificent. It's noisy, chaotic, slightly disgusting and often terrifying. Brilliant., And, you know, funny. **** (The Sunday Times) 12/8
