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."
