For his Edinburgh Festival Debut debut  (2016):

'Constructing complex, bewilderingly intricate sentences from the far reaches of a vast vocabulary… Todd emerges as a talent entirely of his own.’ **** Fest

For Monsters (2017):

'Painfully funny… An up and coming talent that deserves a larger audience.’ **** EdFest mag

'Some comics have a gift of words that touches their work with wonder. Richard Todd is such a comic… A painfully funny show… like finding The Fall guesting on X-Factor.’ **** The Scotsman

For We Need The Eggs (2018):

'Warm, personal, unique, very funny.'  **** Chortle

​'Crazily funny stuff.' **** The Scotsman

'His is an eccentrically created world that you can't pull away from even if you wanted to' **** The List


'Expertly crafted in his use of flamboyant language and structure, Todd has slowly built an act that is both fitting to call absurdist and unique. His use of odd turns of phrase seem completely off-the-cuff but are so perfectly weird that it shouldn’t be attributed to anything other than his abilities as a writer and storyteller.  **** The Skinny

For Transferable Skills (2022):

“A comic with the ability to do surrealism, storytelling and exquisitely crafted wordplay all in the same few minutes.” The Scotsman ****
