"But best of all and, certainly on tonight’s evidence, the indisputably deserving winner of The Press’s ‘Iron Chicken’ award, Fraser Hooper (UK/NZ) serves up a truly unforgettable combination of slapstick, comic timing, story-line and exceptionally effective use of five audience recruits. For this act, it’s impossible to convey the originality, atmosphere and humour in writing – you had to be there, and I’m glad I was."

"Funny business" was all part of Fraser Hooper's somewhat risky audience involvement schtick, but it proved effective, bringing about belly laughs aplenty. It was impossible not to laugh. Fortunately, while milking their mistakes, the clown also had the knack of artfully managing his "guests" to mitigate any embarrassment, and no egos were harmed in the making of this hilarity."
