"A comic with the ability to do surrealism, storytelling and exquisitely crafted wordplay all in the same few minutes.” The Scotsman ****

"Expertly crafted in his use of flamboyant language and structure, Todd has slowly built an act that is both fitting to call absurdist and unique. His use of odd turns of phrase seem completely off-the-cuff but are so perfectly weird that it shouldn’t be attributed to anything other than his abilities as a writer and storyteller.” – The Skinny ****

"A talent entirely of his own. The left-field subject matter he tackles is rooted in the everyday, and we identify with him for all his wildly eccentric thoughts and behaviour.” – Fest ****

"Some comics have a gift of words that touches their work with wonder. Richard Todd is such a comic… A painfully funny show… like finding The Fall guesting on X-Factor.” – The Scotsman ****

"Warm, personal, unique, very funny.” – Chortle ****

"His is an eccentrically created world that you can't pull away from even if you wanted to” – The List ****
