"Partial nudity, offensive tricks and gorgeous song." The Age
"For anyone eager to check out a broad and rangy selection of the Comedy Festival's top cabaret, vaudeville and stand-up acts, this late-night variety special is the best-value show in town." The Age http://www.alimcgregor.com
'Happily, McGregor has elected to squander her operatic training on us. Her songs are often bawdy, usually peculiar and always polished.

'McGregor sings between each number and while she has a cracking set of pipes, most of the songs make you laugh so hard it's difficult to know if it's her musical or comedy talents one should be concentrating on.'
