“A clearly gifted comedian with a comfy and approachable style, he is as self-aware and structurally subversive as any of the Fringe’s great alternative comedians, without fitting directly into that bracket. It’s material that could work anywhere and appeal to most, whilst being subtle and clever” – Edfestmag

“Sunil Patel oozes funny like a jammy doughnut running down a diner’s chin. Sometimes looking at his expressionless facade, I wonder whether he even realises how funny he is” – Broadway Baby
