Infectious charm and a razor wit bringing a series of comic characters to vibrant life... it's deeply refreshing to see a comedian who's actually got something to say. ****

One of the most innovative & relevant acts you'll see this year
Highly talented... utterly charming
Hils Barker is one of the best young comedians around – go and see her.
Peter Richardson, The Comic Strip
a must see show ****
Worthy of her own TV show
She knows how to write a gag… mocking but affectionate.
In The Wrong Place crackles and surges with pixie-ish energy and charming bitterness. Barker's envenomed befuddlement is frequently hilarious… her starry entrance may prove prophetic. * * * *
Hilarious…star of the night.
The Edinburgh Guide
Wonderful and funny
Sharp, fine-tuned material. * * * *
Hilarious… Hils Barker is a very gifted comic.
A cynical intelligence and keen wit at work…definitely one to watch
Barker's multi-faceted humour has more teeth than the sweet smile suggests.
Superbly witty… she does not seem afraid to try out new material and stay away from the standard. Hilarious.
Tore the roof off – far, far funnier than I can explain here.
Charles Nevin, The Guardian
