"Mike Wilmot is the uncle you've always been afraid to invite to the party. Miss him at your own peril."
"Wilmot is funny in the way that normally only root vegetables can be."
" Leaves the audience in a state of hilarity that most comedians can only dream of."
The Sunday Times
"He sweats; he shambles; he swears. You'll cough, choke and chortle."
The Glasgow Herald
"At times raucous, offensive and downright crude... this was a most entertaining experience."
"Like any fine comedian, he exudes intelligence and sweat in equal measures, Wilmot can give any other stand-up alive lessons in the power of laughter to free us from the shackles of embarrassment."
"The 38 year-old Canadian is a natural raconteur, dispensing with a watch, 'preferring to use beer as a clock' ...
he's effortlessly funny."
"Canada's answer to Bill Hicks....he's politically and anatomically incorrect. But damn if he ain't funny."
"I felt like my mind was being de-flowered by a cynical aging imp,
yet, disturbingly, this was a most entertaining experience.."
