“All his columns are amusing. The best are masterpieces. Some of these pieces are so good that a reader will not only laugh out loud but also annoy anyone else around by reading extracts to them.”

– Joanne Black, Dominion Post

“Many of his observations give shape to things you had dimly perceived yourself and you want to punch the air screaming 'Yes!!!' Other observations take your breath away with their comic invention. Writers with his gifts don't come along very often. The bastard had me laughing out loud.” 

– Tom Scott, Cartoonist


“That Raybon Kan holds our attention and keeps us laughing for 80 minutes that seem like 40 is a good indication of his talent. He offers extraordinary ways of seeing the ordinary.”

- John Smythe, National Business Review


“Kan is an endearing performer, boyish and self-deprecating, yet not in the slightest bit needy. Some of his material is very dark and some is as light as air, and most of it works. A highlight of the festival.”

- Fiona Scott-Norman, The Age, Melbourne


“The thinking woman’s comedian… Must-see, nerve-wrenching white-knuckle comedy.” 

- Tash McGill, Auckland Scene


“He has made live comedy his own. It’s easy to be swept along for a roller-coaster ride that also provokes some serious thought.”

- Nigel Benson, Otago Daily Times


“He has a ready wit, an engaging personality with bags of charm, and the true comedian’s ability to take the ordinary, the mundane, the unnoticed, and turn it into the bizarre.”

- The Press, Christchurch
