What People Have Said...
Hoorah For Cancer- André Vincent Is Unwell:
"Getting cancer was one of the best things to happen to Vincent, giving this solid circuit performer enough material for an exceptionally brilliant show a rich seam of strong, observational comedy. He always gets people laughing through his accomplished stand-up skills, evident in his scalpel-sharp ad-libs and outstanding one-liners."
"Aside from his ability to sustain a single narrative for a full hour, with thought-provoking originality and biting humour, Vincent also uses video to deliver one of the most disarming punch lines you’re ever likely to see on the Fringe."
"An improvising comedy genius"
"He possesses the energy of Lee Evans with the improvisational Skills of Paul Merton and is one of the best comedians in the business."
THE SUNDAY TIMES
"Honesty and truth (and funny lines) are comedy essentials and fortunately Vincent has come more than prepared. Physically and vocally reminiscent of Phill Jupitus, this corpulent comic is an utterly welcoming presence, lacing his blokeish jollity with welcome shots of rage and giggling incomprehension. He immediately puts the audience at ease, discussing his 'little issue' in an entirely matter-of-fact yet utterly compelling manner, he manages to hone in on the absurdity of each situation, while retaining an impressively level-headed perspective."
"He is an experience comedian whose collection of anecdotes, one-lines, a somewhat warped view on situations created a fresh, original and purely exciting and brilliant performance. There really was nothing wrong with this show. It deserves to sell out, it deserves to tour to packed houses, and Andre deserves to continue going from strength to strength. It really is infectious comedy, and for Andre it was literally side splitting. See it now, this is a rare gem of an idea performed perfectly. Go Go Go because remember, he may not be around for long! I do hope not actually, because Andre Vincent Is Unwell is extraordinarily brilliant"
THE EARLY EDITION
"Andre Vincent, on the other hand, is brash and loud and careers headlong into delicate topics with all the subtlety of an enraged wildebeast. In spite, or perhaps because of, this however, Vincent is the only panel member to really step away from safe material and take risks. His wonderfully tasteless one-liners about 9/11 and basement-dwelling Austrian families may get a few groans but they’re certainly memorable."

Cinderella - Manchester, Opera House 2015
Andre Vincent as Buttons has the audience in stitches over his stupidity and naivety throughout the show, his dedication to the role is evident as he epitomises the classic panto character.
MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS - 2015
Cinders’ best friend and confidant, Buttons, was played by Andre Vincent was great. Really great! He was what kept the story going and put those dreadful step-sisters in their places more than once! At first I wasn’t too keen on him and I don’t know why, but after a few minutes of shouting, ‘Yo there, Buttons!’ every time he came on stage, I was loving him. He was fab! In particular a scene between him, Baron Eccles and Dandini, in which he tries to grasp who lives in the first house, what lives in the second house and I don’t know what lives in the third house – which was funny as hell!
VADA MAGAZINE - 2015
But the stand-out star of the show was undoubtedly Andre Vincent who absolutely shone as Buttons. The whole audience warmed to him from the very beginning and his comedy timing and stage presence was a joy to watch.

Jack & the Beanstalk - Bridlington Spa 2018
The star of the show for me had to be Andre Vincent playing Jack and Simon’s mother, Dame Trott. A perfect dame, flirty, a bit rude, outrageous costumes and a great rapport with the audience. One child further back kept shouting out and Dame Trott interacted with the child brilliantly.
WHATSONHUB.COM - 2018
Vincent was sublime in the role of Dame Trott – with a touch of Norman Evans and a nod to Les Dawson – he brought a touch of variety to the part. He embodied every ‘dame’ cliche in the panto book – from singling out a man in the audience to ‘court’ to wearing DMs – and was fabulous.
BRIDLINGTON PRESS - 2018
Beauty & the Beast - Worthing Pavilion 2021
However for me the hero/heroine of the show is André Vincent who plays the fabulous over-the-top Madame Cherie Trifle. Reminiscent of Christopher Biggins…sprinkled with lots of silliness and corny jokes and of course a good deal of audience participation, an extremely ample pantomime Dame.
