"Love is the central theme to all 22 'Odd Birdz' sketches, which are run through with deftness. It’s mostly very fresh...For each slightly sour note were two savory ones that could give SNL a lesson or two—and a fan base to back it."

"'Odd Birdz' also contains some hoary bits aimed at the lowest comedic denominator...Yet a lot of 'Odd Birdz' is funny, and the company’s exuberance is contagious. Post show, you’ll find the performers have beaten you to the sidewalk. They’re out there at their charming best, singing joyously."

"Just as Cirque du Soleil changed how the world envisioned circus, Tziporela is ready to change how we envision sketch comedy. Their unique brand of humor is always clever and sure to make anyone laugh without ever being too vulgar or crass. Some of their jokes may not be appropriate for all audiences, but everyone who attends one of their productions is sure to have a marvelous time laughing with enthusiastic abandon."

"These are some of the most talented people I’ve ever had the pleasure to see...One of the things that was so incredible was their laser sharp timing in each skit. Thinking about it now, as I write this, it is still hard to imagine how they were able to move about with such precise timing where literally seconds were involved to achieve the effect they wanted…and achieve it they did."

"What’s most remarkable about 'Odd Birdz', is that despite its incessant energy and the troupe’s obvious need to please, they never come off as grating or exhausting, instead they truly try to deliver something for everyone making it the rare spectacle that’s both creative and humble. The recurring nature of some of the sketches often make it feel like an episode from a larger variety show, which makes one wonder just how limitless the troupe’s creativity could be if they were given a permanent venue to develop weekly."

"They are a brilliant bunch that oftentimes make you think while you laugh, and wonder how they came up with ideas that are so on point. Any qualms about Israeli humor getting lost in translation or not sitting well with an American audience were quashed. This, despite meddling with the usually tabooed topics of death, homosexuality and stereotypes. Their brand of absurd transcends culture, origin and language."
