"A comedian who makes you feel glad to be alive". The Guardian
" Dominic Holland is like an old school friend who you bump into on a train. He appears slightly nervous at first, but soon relaxes and keeps you laughing for more than an hour as he brings you up-to-date on his life. You get the impression almost everything Holland says about his life on stage is actually true. He has no comic persona or set of characters, relying solely on his natural charm. While he might give the impression of not being in the race at all, he will be up with the front-runners for a long time to come. " BBC News Online
