    What the critics had to say.....

    CHARLES ISHERWOOD of the NEW YORK TIMES says �Virtually all of what he said cannot be printed, or indeed even described, here. But it was a giddy delight.� CLIVE BARNES of the NEW YORK POST says "Sour humor burbles, most of it adolescently foul-mouthed and Friars' Roast nasty." HOWARD KISSEL of NEW YORK DAILY NEWS says �It has a raw energy that's truly theatrical. It fills the stage.� MICHAEL SOMMERS of STAR-LEDGER says "A classy showcase for a raucous entertainer who certainly lives up to his billing." DAVID ROONEY of VARIETY says "Profane and pugnacious, Cantone is wickedly entertaining." MICHAEL KUCHWARA of Associated Press says "Leaves his audience helpless with laughter."
