“Amiably hilarious” – The Daily Telegraph
“★★★★★ Cam Knight’s show Momentous, at The Chinese Museum, was stand-up comedy at its best. From the minute he takes the stage, the laughs come thick and fast, as Knight reflects on the momentous year that was 2016… The subjects of Knight’s comedy often have very serious undertones, but are handled in such a way that the audience feels free to laugh…. The audience has little time to catch their breath between bouts of laughter, but the performance feels very natural, and Knight approaches the audience as if he is sharing with friends.” Theatre People
“★★★★ 1/2 – For an easy win at this year’s comedy festival, don’t miss Cam’s charming yet irreverent take on fatherhood, which will leave an indelible impression that may affect your own parenting for the better, but possibly for the worse. ” Herald Sun
