"Ms. Kirkman knows how to deliver a one-liner, but her inclination is to linger in the telling of a story. She digs into a subject, embroidering it with jokes at various angles. A huge number of her bits culminate in vivid metaphors. Though delivered in an effortless conversational style, her comedy has the meticulous detail that can come only from repetition and experience.” – The New York Times
