REVIEW: Rare daring and energy in tale of comic's bad trip

John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald, 19 April 2013

"Di Fonzo's treatment has something of the go-anywhere gusto of a [Lenny] Bruce stand-up routine. It flits between time, location and characters, generating a jazzy fantasia on the theme of Bruce in Sydney. It jumps between Bruce on stage and off, between people remembering him and journalists reporting his ''sickness''."

REVIEW: Lenny Bruce: 13 Daze Un-Dug in Sydney 1962

Chard Core, Arts Hub, 2013

"A vaudevillian mash-up of stand-up, documentary and jazz telling the tale of 'sick' comedian Lenny Bruce's abortive 1962 Sydney tour."

REVIEW: Lenny Bruce: 13 Daze Un-Dug in Sydney, 1962

Brad Syke, Australian Stage, 20 April 2013

"Not so much glissendorf as 'a vaudevillean mash-up of stand-up, documentary and jazz' in a 'surreal investigation of the attempted Sydney tour of this legendary comedian', 'loosely distorted from the book Lenny Bruce: 13 Days in Sydney, by Damien Kringas. It's vintage, tongue-in-cheeky Di Fonzo and proves an apt description, with its sidelights of people Lenny encountered in the Antipodes, on his arrival direct from a season at Peter Cook’s Establishment Club in London."
