★★★★★
Intelligent writing and giggle-inducing anecdotes… a side split-tingly funny show…It finds light where there is darkness… I sincerely hope this show receives the recognition it deserves
Underdog Reviews

★★★★★
One of the wittiest and most heartfelt shows… it feels like a direct descendant to the popular and political theatre of Joan Littlewood… A genuinely vital piece of theatre that doesn’t aim to answer if theatre or comedy can change the world but proves that it can certainly seriously annoy those in power
All Edinburgh Theatre

★★★★
An incredible tale, a heartbreakingly funny tale and an incredible tale to make funny
The Wee Review

★★★★
This show also gives a voice to the voiceless and tells the untold stories from the other side of the wall
Edinburgh Guide

Charming and funny in equal measure… Showtime From the Frontline is another triumph in Thomas’s clever line in activist theatre. Yet again, the self-defined ‘libertarian anarchist’ comedian delivers politics without the polemic
