"Barry is hilariously funny, but more important, his humor comes
out of a deep intelligence, an extraordinary understanding of the
world around him and an intense commitment to social change."
"Barry Crimmins uses his sharp sense of irony as a political weapon. In his hands, the subversive joke is the first small act of resistance." -Billy Bragg
"He breaks down reality in a hilarious way. He seems ticked off at everything, and when you hear him, you agree. One of the few political comedians who are really good." -Steven Wright
"Like a mixture of Tom Paine and Mark Twain, Crimmins mixes politics and humor with savage results." -Michael Blowen, The Boston Globe
