An almighty car crash of a comic, Jack Tucker is an act you can’t take your eyes off, so mesmerising is his hack ineptitude and contradictory, bulletproof confidence in his greatness. ...

The Guardian (3/5 stars) 28 days ago

The hack comic is such a mainstay of drama and caricature – from Osborne’s Entertainer via Neil Hamburger to Zoe Coombs Marr’s Dave – the concept is practically hack itself. You need something to distinguish yourself from the herd, and Zach Zucker (of clown duo Zach and Viggo) certainly has...

Voice Magazine (4/5 stars) 29 days ago

What appears to be random strings of consciousness and mishaps are all precisely choreographed by a genius of the trade. It took a few minutes to understand quite how the show was going to work, but once you get over that very British aversion to rambunctious personalities, you’re (possibly) going to have an amazing time.

Fest (4/5 stars) 32 days ago

Anyone who listens to certain popular US podcasts will know that the Edinburgh Fringe isn’t for everyone: there are many acclaimed American comics who did one full run and immediately entered that exclusive club who will never set foot here ever again. They came, they saw, they concurred. And surely...

Radio HA-HA (5/5 stars) 34 days ago

After one of the most riduculous hours ever, you leave the theatre buzzed, light-headed and jaw dropped. Zucker demonstrates the beauty of perfectly timed, but unexpected sound cues; paired with quality improvisation, and insanely high levels of energy – that I honestly didn’t think one person could possess. Whether he’s congratulating himself on his performance, or flirting with the crowd, whilst simultaneously reminding people he’s married; this show is ludicrous, yet completely compelling and brilliant!

Edinburgh Festivals Magazine (5/5 stars) 36 days ago

Zach Zucker becomes Jack Tucker, the world’s worst (but best!) comedian for a rip-roaring hour of top-notch clowning, outrageous jokes and riotous physical comedy. Jack Tucker is the hapless bad boy of comedy;...

Chortle (4.5/5 stars) 40 days ago

There has always been something compelling about seeing a stand-up struggle. For it surely the height of valiant failure to witness the spiralling indignity of a comic reaching ever-desperately to find something, anything, that will entertain the crowd. ...
