"A sweet-faced cherub with dark eyes that promise all manner of chaos... Kreisler changes the pace a bit with a slightly demented, extremely animated set that attacks everything... The three other comics, standing in the back of the bar, crane their necks to see the fireworks, grinning broadly. Piraro breaks into applause.'"
"A welcome reminder of a time when comedy cut a lot closer to the issues of the day than most comics now dare."
"Kreisler's comedy style had a wonderful, dark theatrical approach that had himself at times being interrupted by his alter ego of his higher-pitched microphone, cracking the whole room up."
"The highlight of this all-American evening was final act Kreisler, who, with slow, dry rigour, pulled apart America..."
"Jeff Kreisler is a heavy hitter - he has won the Bill Hicks Spirit Award and looks like George Clooney, but sweatier. His hour holds some of the smartest political material around. One of the things that makes Kreisler fascinating is his unashamed love for America; he just hates what has been done to it. The final section, involving Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney and Rohypnol may be the most powerful description of the past few years of US history you'll hear... slick, political sharp-shooting..."
"It's a great time to see an American political comic, and you'll struggle to find better than Jeff Kreisler. With slick and witty poise he mixes wry observation on current affairs with quirky bouts of surrealism."
"Up next was Kreisler with his special brand of political and social humour. It's easy to see why he won the inaugural (sic) 'Bill Hicks Spirit Award For Thought-Provoking Comedy'; he tore into politics, race and religion in a similar style to Hicks, but with his own personal slant and some very acute and funny observations... This is one show that will have you laughing from start to finish and is probably one of the best comedy shows at the Fringe..."
"Funny and on-fire Jeff Kreisler followed, snarling about 'Arnold Schwartzenreagan', railing against attack ads and injecting some powerful and pointed political barbs on both sides. With wild, dark eyes and a disarming grin..."
“Kreisler is a master at creating lines that are masked by a kind of humor that pokes fun at anything and everyone, including himself. Whatever his tactic, Kreisler can get his political points and opinions across, and still manages to find favor with the audience... Jeff Kreisler’s hilarious insights into society’s foibles combined with his intelligence, knack for humor, and genial spirits made for an excellent hour of political humor that could be appreciated by both Democrats and Republicans... Kreisler serves as the intermediary comedic glue that has the power to unite political fronts across social spheres.”

"We hired Jeff to write and perform original material for our client, Ericsson, the world leading telecommunications company. We asked the impossible - make mobile advertising funny for a worldwide industry audience - but Jeff delivered with humor and intelligence. Working on a very tight schedule, Jeff created smart and funny content that fit perfectly with our needs. He was pleasure to work with, flexible and accessible, willing to make edits and adaptations whenever asked. Jeff's performance in Stockholm was entertaining and on target. Our client and we are both very happy with the final product, and we hope to work with Jeff in the future."
