"Irishman FJ Murray's sobering yet hilarious reflections on an upbringing lacking in fatherly affection provided more subtle flavour to the night... however, the sight of a six-foot sombre Irishman impersonating 50 Cent was far from subtle, and perhaps offered one of the most surreal sights The Stand has seen in a while" - Edinburgh Evening News, January 2010
