“Gordillo is an inspiration, a consummate performer with an amazing talent, passion and intellect. If you are after cheap, silly laughs avoid this, but if you want intelligent, moving comedy with a point, then you cannot afford to miss it.” – Chortle
“A grown-up comic who combines emotional intimacy with high-quality gags. Gordillo has found a perfectly sized niche for himself as a thought-provoking, kitchen-sink existentialist, asking questions about personal and public politics with a grace and hilarious insight beyond many of the young pretenders” – The Guardian
“Gordillo makes the personal political with the sort of relaxed intelligence associated with Reginald D. Hunter, whose shows Gordillo used to direct. Heartfelt, intellectual or angry, he’s dynamite” – The Times
“manages the rare trick of being moving and wildly funny” – Metro
“One of our finest stand ups” – Evening Standard
