Stephen Watson, LaughingPod.com: "Sometimes you create the perfect comedy night and last night was one of them nights. We had a fantastic venue and a great audience which everyone wants then the perfect line up. We had the fantastic Jojo Georgiou as the host and the troops loved her. Then we had a fantastic opening 1st half with David Alfie Ward and Leo Kearse both were on top forum. The second half was also top draw we started with Ed Pownall who I thought was great..."
David Shakespeare, Honest Comedy in Banbury: "Ed is one of the best guys we have seen do crowd work. Armed with a wit sharper than a Stanley knife, Ed takes the audience on a journey they don’t always want to take; When they get to their destination they are delighted they arrived. Ed’s interactive set made for a hilarious close to the night. Honest Comedy can’t wait to see him again"
Catherine Russell AKA Serena Campbell from Holby City: "Loved your's; really original, cynical and funny."
The Weekender, Charlie's [Hills] Week: "I went to a comedy night at The Rose & Crown in Ashbury on Saturday which made me laugh. Ed Pownall was perfoming, he's got a future!"
