You'll love this. ‘Simply inspired’ (TheatreBubble.com). ***** (ThreeWeeks). **** (WhatsOnStage.com). ‘Made his full room roar with laughter’ **** (MumbleComedy.net).

This was an epic, cosmic, stupendous, blockbuster stand up show that had the whole audience smiling. Gary made an effort to have a great rapport with everyone in the audience. Maybe that's his super power? If you love superheroes, see this. If you hate superheroes, still see this. Either way I am sure you will be amused. Confused? It will all make sense when you see the show, and trust me...you won't regret it!

Gary Tro: The Greatest Superhero Movie Never Made was the highlight of this year’s Fringe for us. He kept us chuckling from beginning to end - (and that’s from someone who knows nothing about superheroes! ). Definitely recommend .

I had such a laugh with this show - I went knowing I would miss jokes because I'm not a madly involved superhero fan but actually he's made it work really well for vague fans and supernerds. Really funny and original - the whole audience laughed through the whole thing. Brilliant.

We were lucky to get front row seats to witness such a life changing experience. Superhero fans will enjoy the references and jokes relating to their favourite characters and everyone will enjoy the quick and engaging audience interactions.
