'Wonderfully inventive and intelligent’ (Evening Standard)
'One-liners are delivered with the crisp clarity of cut glass. Highly original' (Metro)

pleasure listening to him... Opinionated, witty and smart – Sinha is the certainly one of the comics Fringe goers should be flocking to' (Chortle)
'His confidence on stage was excellent and his talent for adlibbing and summoning gags off the cuff were very funny' (BBC Online).
