‘Nervous laughs at the unpredictability of a lunatic merge into heartier guffaws for his bold set pieces, raw potency and inspired ideas’ Chortle

‘McQueen knows the rules of comedy and he enjoys burning them’ Broadway Baby

"A true maverick" The Scotsman
"He really feels like an undiscovered treasure. His anarchic and confrontational style is far from mainstream, but Luke McQueen is rapidly beginning to be regarded as a minor deity of the alternative comedy scene" The Wee review
