He also smells really great and has made out with a lot of chicks and you can ask anyone.
-New York Magazine
“Cult New York comedian Hill is a hugely talented funnyman.”
-Time Out London
“Hill’s loose jabs and affable, nice-guy demeanor are what make his gently absurdist comedy so enjoyable.”
“Great comic ideas seem to flood out of him, whether he’s mashing up home videos with clips of extreme arthouse movies or engaging in a six-month flame war with a Norwegian black metal musician.”
-The Guardian UK
“He’s a charming, guileless ingenue with an outlook that’s distinctively his own and a collection of wonderfully entertaining anecdotes painting vividly funny pictures.”
“He is at the vanguard of a new class of entertainers.”
-Wall Street Journal
