"I just wanted to drop you a note that I saw Matt's show last Sunday and was blown away. I was touched inspired and moved in a way that is hard to explain."
"The best one-man show I've seen!"
"I had no words for how moved I was by your honesty, your lack of pretension, and, of course, the last part of the show. As someone who as has felt like a loser for most of my life, I can't tell you what it meant to hear you talk about feeling that way with such unflinching honesty, and with such care."
"Just wanted to say again that I really enjoyed the show. I'm sure it's been said, but really incredibly brave of you to step up there and do what you did. And I'm glad you decided to stop when you did, otherwise I would have had to make something up about allergies."
"…an emotional punch in the gut rhapsody about being human."
"I had to write this to you after I'd had some time to think and reflect on what happened the other night. I'm getting choked up right now just thinking about it. And you should know, that last line lands like a punch to the chest.
So really, I just wanted to say thank you for giving me and everyone else a piece of yourself the way you did. It was a beautiful show, and I won't ever forget it."
"My friend Matt Graham's one-man show, "This Too Shall Suck," has been extended as part of this year's Fringe Festival. It's extraordinarily funny, genuinely moving, and one of the most honest pieces of artistic work I've ever read or seen. Give it a shot, won't you?"
"I just saw the most wonderful one person show "This Too Shall Suck" By Matt Graham. What a show! I mean when people ask me to see their one person shows, "I'm like OK, labor of love, let me support the arts and have extra coffee, and figure out what to say about that "conception"-but this, was brilliant, honest, messy, smart, quirky, original, touching, poignant, heartfelt, and if you love cats, (bring the kleenex!!!) A simple tale from a complex deep heart. A wonderful show. Next time Matt Graham does it, everyone should go and see it and trust me, I'll be posting it!"
"…an intimate evening with a razor sharp performer…" "Transcendent"
Hy on the Fringe
"Thank you for a hilarious show last Thursday. You are the most authentic artist I've ever seen. This Too Shall Suck (A Charlie Brown Crucifixion) is 60 minutes of pure catharsis."
"I felt like a better person for having seen it."
"I had to express my gratitude for putting yourself out there. Your material was smart, very funny and tender."
"It was great. I've seen a ton of those things and rarely do I both laugh and tear up, and then feel grateful for so many things afterwards."

"You might not remember me, i did the Showcases at Catch back in 87. Many of those nights, you blew Maron, Garafalo, CK, Cross and Myself all off the stage."
