'Something magnetic in the tragedy of his performance' (List). 'Crass, offensive, disturbingly-hilarious' ( 'Electrifying. More than a touch of crazy' ***** (Scotsman). Winner Fringe Experience Award (given ‘to the show that provides the most memorable and extraordinary experience at the Fringe') by The Wee Review Awards.

"Electrifying...a bizarre cross between performance art, a swingers’ party and a papal blessing." The Scotsman ★★★★★

New Yorker and now Nunheader, “Schaffer is disconcertingly terrific. He is compelling, unique and most of all unpredictable.” Bruce Dessau, London Evening Standard. “An hour with Lewis Schaffer is an hilarious, cathartic, exhilaratingly appalling experience.” Kate Copstick, ITV & The Scotsman. “A bloody good laugh and unlike anything else on the comedy circuit. Go see Lewis Schaffer.” Time Out
