“Deb Filler is a consummate story teller… Her stories weave poignantly, hilariously and seamlessly throughout the evening, and for this reviewer it was sublime, like being seated in the living room of a masterful storyteller. Her jokes are brilliant, harnessing the truly great style of the masters of Jewish comedy. Her timing is second to none, and her musical prowess is remarkable. Do not miss an evening with her. You’ll go home feeling joy and fulfillment.” – – New Zealand Herald
“Deb Filler is a legendary story teller and comic. No one tells jokes like Filler, whose New Zealand background must have given her outsider status to study the timing of the greats: Danny Kaye, Sid Cesar, Mel Brooks and Joan Rivers. After a night with Deb Filler, anything is possible. Miss this show at your own peril.” – Sydney Jewish News
