Reviews - LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON? SORRY.

"Gibbs' hour of observations about his first two years of fatherhood is as clever and funny a show as you'll see at this festival. A thoroughly entertaining and hilarious show that has my highest recommendation."
CBC

"an endearingly hapless quester, constantly reassessing his personal experience, having second thoughts and going off on hilarious tangents. Not to be missed."
Edmonton Journal

"He's one of the most uniquely persuasive solo performers around... it's all fresh, it's all funny, it's presented with wit and style... Highly recommended"
Toronto Star

"goes way beyond navel-gazing to ask profound (and very funny) questions about life, death and Star Trek, all delivered in Gibbs's genial, self-effacing manner."
Now, Toronto

"tremendous energy and wit sweeps the audience along like a heady drug."
Victoria Times Colonist

"The jokes come so fast you could miss a third of them while you're laughing."
Winnipeg Free Press


"Gibbs' performance as the witless and self-deprecating Barnaby is near flawless. His martini-dry wit is characteristically sharp, in both script and performance, and his comic timing is beautiful."
CBC

"Absolutely priceless… Sherlockians will be in heaven. Everyone else will be here, laughing hard."
Edmonton Journal

"Chris Gibbs is such an effortlessly natural, off-the-cuff comedian that it's easy to overlook what a superb playwright he is. Arguably the year's most perfect script."
Vue Weekly, Edmonton

"Chris Gibbs wins over the audience while telling a mystery story with twists, turns, and plenty of gadzooks moments."
Now Magazine, Toronto

"hilarious and quick-witted"
The Hour, Montreal

"a masterpiece that manages to be both ridiculous and intelligent"
Vancouver Sun


Reviews - THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF ANTOINE FEVAL

"Gibbs is a top-level performer, seamlessly switching from smart wordplay, to snappy ad libs. This is one sequel that works."
CBC

"a sly, stylish, and highly literate little gem...The writing is very funny. And the way it comes to life, culminating in a climactic action sequence through east end London, has a dizzy intricacy that will make you laugh very hard, but afraid to laugh too loud in case you miss something."
Edmonton Journal

"hilarious… his distinctive dry humour and deadpan delivery is limitless"
Winnipeg Free Press

"you find yourself helplessly laughing at horrific anecdotes, disturbing balloon tricks and odd observations"
Edmonton Journal

"In my humble opinion, Chris Gibbs is quite simply the most solid bang for your comedy buck going. This Brit-turned-Canuck packs as many big laughs per minute into his hour-and-a-quarter stand-up show as anyone."
CBC

"Deliberately tentative and twitchy, and darkly gleeful at times, his hand-wringing style and sotto voce asides are comic stand-up gold."
Toronto Star

"ridiculous and intelligent"
Edmonton Sun


Reviews - THE POWER OF IGNORANCE

"… exquisitely constructed, perfectly daffy architecture of logic … Gibbs as Vaguen is the funniest performance I've seen at the Fringe. The Power of Ignorance is bliss"
Edmonton Journal

"This is one of the funniest shows I've seen in years. Cleverly written and beautifully performed, The Power of Ignorance is satirical comedy at its finest."
Victoria Times-Colonist

"This is the funniest piece I have ever seen at any of the 13 fringes I have attended. Heck, it's in the top five of the funniest plays I have seen in nearly half a century of theatre-going."
montreal.com

"Gibbs has the timing of a cosmic clock, a subtle comic personality that finds humour in the smallest gesture and a fractured logic that can only come from a brilliant mind."
Edmonton Sun

"The Power of Ignorance is bliss"
Eye Weekly

"one of the best times at the theatre I've ever had."
Calgary Herald

"It is painfully funny… The ending is "striking", that's all I feel I can say, but the laughter carried on as people were leaving the venue."
CBC
