‘A dazzling display of non-telepathy. Seen Lie to Me or The Mentalist on the telly? Imagine Simon Baker or Tim Roth replaced by Gareth from The Office and over-caffeinated and heavily gelled. That’s Cox’s stage persona…his fast-paced hour-plus was as much of a mind bender as it was a funnybone rattler.’ New Zealand Herald
‘The idea of comedy mixed in with mind reading isn’t one which I wasn’t particularly looking forward to. But it’s nice to be proven wrong – because at the end of this show, I wanted more… let’s just say if you don’t leave pondering “How did he do that?” and smiling stupidly, you’re probably not going to enjoy any comedy over the next 3 or so week.’ TVNZ New Zealand
”After a frenetic hour filled with trickery, cheeky quips, multiple double entendre’s and a soft toy ferret in a jumper – I can officially say I Love Cox. Chris Cox is a charming entertainer full of manic energy and wins you over with his earnest, self effacing stage persona while simultaneously perplexing the audience with his hybrid blend of comedy and magic. I won’t give away too much as it really needs to be seen to be believed, but the finale was downright extraordinary, revealing that every single moment in the show had been carefully crafted and Cox is deserving of all the praise that has been heaped on him. While leaving the show, I could hear that I was not the only one pondering out loud, “How did he do that?”. This is a must see show.’ TV 3, New Zealand.
