Of his performance with Myq Kaplan BlogTO wrote: “…[Craig] was firing on all cylinders, casually crushing with crowd work and progressively subversive material…It was one of those performances when you realize, ‘Oh, this guy is genuinely funny.’ You don’t see that everyday.”
And in the words of a recent audience member “You got some mad smart content yo!”
