"An everyman with a set that is as relatable as it is funny, Krick’s bits place the audience in the driver’s seat of the impending punchline to be, albeit with a slightly harder R rating than how most of us are probably used to living our lives." - Trunk Space

“Brendan earned not one, not two but THREE audience chants off his jokes … Brendan takes the win in a really impressive and tightly fought first battle.” - Roast Report

"Krick is hilarious in his role of the hapless goofball..." - Matt Boiselle, Dread Central

"Krick is like a cross between National Lampoon’s, Tony Denman (Dorm Daze) and Jonathan Daniel Brown (of Project X), only with a lot more talent and comedic timing." - Adam the Movie God

"The Backpage is a must see for any fan of the genre. The rapport with the cast seems like they’ve known each other forever and it shows on screen." - From Dusk Till Con
