“★★★★ Delightfully Weird.” – TIME OUT
“★★★★ Likeable, sweeping the audience in the sheer energy of his performance. The strength of his scatty character rips through the room like a mini-hurricane. ” – CHORTLE
“★★★★ The undeniable intelligence of Eric Lampaert’s stand-up rarely stops him from indulging in silliness or, occasionally, outright weirdness.” – TV BOMB
“★★★★ He makes it look so easy but this is a man with very funny bones. Definitely one to catch.” – DAILY EXPRESS
“★★★★ Brilliant silliness.” – THE FEST
“★★★★ Superb banter that was clearly improvised. The sign of a good comedian.” – THREE WEEKS
“★★★★ Lampaert is at ease with the performer-punter dynamic, displaying a cool comic ease that grounds the show. Natural comic flair and the knack for a decent hook, action-packed and rapid, exploring the less-traditional delivery style really works for him, and should prove enough comic bite to take him to the next level. ” – THE SKINNY
“Quirky with an eye for the absurd and a couple of near-Izzardian flourishes… energy is such that it’s almost osmotic” – THE STAGE
