Resonant, Refreshing, Profound, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You want to see untraditional theatre - this is a mix of stand-up comedy and barebones storytelling.

Don't see it if You are sensitive about jokes about religion & right-wing politics.

Cliched, Provoking, Ambitious, Clever, Absorbing

See it if if you like high-energy stand-up comedy and you are open to accepting jokes on the Jewish culture and the US white supremacy.

Don't see it if if you are sensitive to jokes on religion and if you don't like self-irony in plays. There are some cliches but still very enjoyable.

The London Evening Standard
January 20th, 2023

"Edelman is a compelling, super-energetic performer, witheringly smart and laceratingly self-critical, expertly cranking and relaxing the throttle of his hectic narrative. He admits he wants us to like him, and it’d be extremely hard not to."

Time Out London
January 19th, 2023

"‘Just for Us’ is very much stand-up comedy, but it’s very theatrical within that, an almighty piece of raconteurism that sees the very awkward, very Jewish Edelman... ."

London Theatre
January 20th, 2023

" 'Just for Us' finds the general in the specific, the politically impassioned in the deeply personal: let’s just say that the unfolding mutual admiration society between Edelman and his British public looks unlikely to abate anytime soon."

The Stage (UK)
January 19th, 2023

"Edelman serves everything up with the lightest, deftest of touches, though it left me craving a little more sting. But it’s as thoughtful as it is beguiling: a show that stares ugliness in the face while wearing a defiantly broad grin."

Theatre Weekly (UK)
January 19th, 2023

“It’s easy to see why the show has been such a success over the last few years, and on both sides of the Atlantic; Alex Edelman: Just For Us is a triumphant ninety minutes of storytelling perfection. It also happens to be side-splittingly funny.”

All That Dazzles (UK)
January 20th, 2023

" 'Just For Us' is an accessible show that has something in it for everyone with a cleverly constructed concept that never dips in quality from start to finish. One thing is for sure – there’s certainly nothing dumb and small about this show."

The Arts Desk

"It’s funnier than heck, each grim irony rammed home by Edelman, not least about his own behaviour, sitting silent for a whole hour, while fancying a pretty anti-Semite called Chelsea and nodding along with the others."

"If you're worried that this all sounds terribly didactic and un-funny then, rest assured, it's also a comedy cracker."
