'A Titan' - The Scotsman
'legendary' - Time Out
'A wild-eyed, professorial figure, Buckley Hill is a fringe institution, partly thanks to his act (an invigorating flirtation with comedy disaster), but mostly because he does not charge admission.' - The Guardian
'always the star of the show' - BBC News
‘Peter is worried about plate tectonics, puzzled by dental records and tackles Fermat's Last Theorem through the medium of song. I laughed so much at his Heston Blumenthal joke that I swallowed two wine gums whole. I want to go and see this show again as soon as I can. Which is about the biggest compliment I can give. Apart from these five stars, of course.-  The Scotsman
