25.08.20 - ★★★★ The Times 'The best show at this year's Fringe... A classic, structured rollercoaster Fringe hour... star in waiting... he is untouchable.'
29.08.20 'An extraordinary story richly accessorised with laughter. The best live comedy I have seen this August.' Kate Copstick, The Scotsman
15.05.22 - 'Nathan Cassidy proves once again that he’s one of the funniest comedians in the game with his show, Observational. His wordplay and fast, slick jokes are impeccable... suddenly they culminate in the best ending I’ve seen to a comedy set possibly ever... He is a true talent, a genuinely naturally funny man, and to not see him is to miss out on something very special.' Seagull News
11.05.22 - 'Well-crafted, very original and very funny… one of the most original show endings I have seen. Clever, articulate… sometime scathing and cynical, but also touching and hopeful. Highly recommended.’

Observational in Berlin August 2020
'As you watch his magic carpet unwind you sense a certain eerieness, that something special is going down, but you don’t know what... something transcendent, something sorcerous. Then comes the spinejangling & euphoric Keyser Söze finale, when all will seem well in the world!'

'Well crafted and delivered at good pace with everyone leaving the venue with a warm feeling and a smile on their face' Buxton Fringe Review for Observational July 2019
'Nathan is like the ultimate anti-braggadocio, his boasts are solid, his pretensions likeable; while his tone is akin to a hammond organ played by a pro. His imagination for humour is like the fox that wanders city streets at night, searching for food where others have left it. Nathan also has the impertinent ability to tell stories in the staccato fashion; each line is told like a joke, but without a punchline – an extraordinary ability that has you hanging on every pause.'
