“But is it real comedy? It most certainly is. People love to laugh and there are many routes to arrive at that destination. Is it traditional? It most certainly is not. It’s not what the average person envisions when they think of comedy. But regular shows would kill for these kinds of laughs.” - The Georgia Straight

“Teen Angst Night is a good time” - CFOX Radio

"Bloody hilarious" - ION Magazine


"it was hilarious. I laughed, I groaned, he laughed, we gave each other meaningful looks ... it was so good." - @brightbluegirl on Instagram

"How did I sleep on Sara Bynoe's #TeenAngstNight, running since 2000? Last night I belly-laughed & teared up listening to folk of all backgrounds read earnest & angry teen writing. It reminded me of how amazing & resiliant & powerful youth (we!) are. Thank you, Sara!" - @chelrooney on Twitter

"My face hurts from laughing!" - multiple people after the show
