“When you think of the Fringe, this is exactly what you expect to see — a weird, zany show that pushes you to not take yourself so seriously.”
— Chloe Metcalfe, The Advertiser
“Life on the Line during the day is a bit of family fun that includes dad jokes, Aimee’s graceful aerial ballet on a Hills Hoist ... a little bit of Mark on electric guitar, and some participatory theatre. At night it becomes a tiny bit more adult with some tasteful moments of laughter and applause. ”

Eddie was nominated for Best Cabaret at the Fringe at the Edge of the World Festival in Hobart and enjoyed sell out seasons at Darwin Fringe Festival 2019...

— Kayla Gaskell, Tulpa Magazine
