"Filler is a complete chameleon, transforming herself instantly into dozens of relatives and accents ... exhilarating and liberating."
The Independent, London

"...delivers on so many levels that it plays like a whole host of movies rolled up into one, all of them well worth seeing."" >>MORE
Eye Magazine, Toronto

"The most striking quality of Deb Filler's performance... evokes the emotional dualism of much great humour (Issac Bashshevis Singer, Woody Allen and Bernice Reubens, among others), which implies that laughter is indispensable.">>MORE
Montreal Mirror

"The show is the celebration of love for family, and especially for (Filler's) father, a Holocaust survivor, but it is also a hilarious tribute to the spirit and humour of an exceptionally resilient culture, that seems, no matter where it is transplanted, to flourish"" >>MORE
Globe and Mail, Canada

“A tasty 'tsimmes'-- a tangy stew of flavors...successful in avoiding both sentimentality and stereotype, not because she eliminates them but because she circumscribes, neutralizes and builds on them... The ironic title also refers to what life itself does to us, and the way the healthiest amongst us, the survivors, roll with the punches." >>MORE
The Toronto Star

"...alternates between howlingly funny and disarmingly poignant." >>MORE
Adrienne Clarkson Presents, CBC

 


"Deb Filler straddles comedy & tragedy in punchy one-woman show.">>MORE
New York Jewish Week

"Filler's show can be described as Jackie Mason meets Tracey Ullman. She has the British Commedienne's flair for mimicry and the Lower East Side social satirist's acerbic wit."">>MORE
