"Last year I got to see the Lance Bangs Presents comedy showcase, so I felt the need to attend again this year, and it did not disappoint. Lance included Emily Heller, who is one of my new favorite comics (I also might want to be her best friend, I don’t know, it’s probably weird for her), and she blew the audience out of the water at the large Bagdad Theater.” -Laughspin

"A smart, confident set, offering perspective that was distinctly female without being, well, annoying about it." -Portland Mercury

"That’s the smartest five minutes about a mustache ride I’ve ever seen." -W. Kamau Bell
