Press "Joe Wells is a skilled jokesmith who threads great gags through intelligent political material that, whilst razor-sharp, is never particularly angry or dark. As the first gross gags open up into smarter, topical ones it's clear that this is a tightly-structured, well thought-out set.
Excellent jokes and sly political comment wrapped tightly in a neat parcel which delivers regular, powerful laughs from a delighted audience. He spins new life out of easy targets like bankers and the BNP with some wonderful imagery" British Comedy Guide "
A star of the future... some of the most surprising and thought-provoking material coming from any comedian in his early 20s" The Guardian “Highly original, inspired and suitably different from the rest of the crowd… brilliantly crafted jokes” Comedy Central
"Proud communistJoe Wells thankfully appeals to the intellect as he discusses the BNP's misunderstanding of flags, fascist propaganda and what would happen if Richard Littlejohn and a harsh comedy reviewer fought to the death. There are solid gags throughout with some unexpected and beautiful turns of phrase. Wells has clearly worked hard building his set, which is well paced, interesting, balanced and funny" Chortle "
A real venom in his delivery seemed to communicate that the numerous laughs that he manages to obtain are just positive collateral to the message he is trying to portray" Broadway Baby "A tight confident set with some exceedingly clever moments" Fest Magazine "
wild and hilarious

She has written, produced, directed and performed five solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival since 2010. Spring has also performed at various clubs in London, Manchester, Dublin, Los Angeles, New York and Paris. She was featured in the 2008 documentary The Tokyo Comedy Store, the upcoming Joker Face book, and in the 2014 best selling book The Humor Code (She’s listed in that book’s index next to "dead-baby joke cycle" and couldn’t be happier about it.)
"Spring's gimlet-eyed perspective on life belies her Summer of Love name, but Tokyo's most prolific comic can't hide her underlying joy of life, even while recounting darker tales of love and loss in Tokyo." -Chris Wells, Owner, Tokyo Comedy Store
