  • [Rory] Scovel is such an energetic, infectiously curious comedian that his setups and punchlines feel like a kid playing with something shiny for the first time, all genuine wide-eyed wonder.

  • [Rory] Scovel balances conceptual metacommentary on the conventions of stand-up with fully-formed political material as biting as any other comic working today in an hour that sends up the very idea of stand-up even while showing how powerful it can be

  • The brute repetition, unyielding in its awkwardness, delighting in the uncomfortable pauses before starting right back up again, hits Andy Kaufman levels of anti-humour.
