“Pin sharp comedy beautifully delivered is his trademark” – Evening Standard
“Green is one of those impish comics who charms rather than provokes his audience, offering them glimpses into the workings of his bizarre mind”- The Independent on Sunday
“If a London comedy critic had to stake his or her life on a performance recommendation, then Jeff Green would have to be in the frame. His shows are freewheeling delightful affairs in which an hour seems to last minutes”- Evening Standard
