Others about Tin
»Tin Vodopivec really hits his stride: engagingly self-deprecating, he turns in some nicely honed, observational gags...« (Venue.co.uk)
"...astute observations about Slovenian and Croatian language, football referees and his sport-ignorant girlfriend. Even when on well-trodden territory such as drunkenly going on the pull, the punchline was nicely put." (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
"Tin Vodopivec was the star of the show" (biggest Slovenian newspaper Zurnal reviewing Viktorji – media awards ceremony)
"Very good - he is so right in many ways. The gags are good; he is able to tell stories using different voices and his personality is so strong. And to think he is doing this as English as a second language." (Cheeky Monkey Comedy Club Birmingham)
