“Comedy of scorching candor” – The London Guardian "Arcade is a wonder to behold; she manages to entertain, absorb and broaden the audience simultaneously. Beg, steal a ticket." – Newsweek "What raises Arcade to the level of greatness is her insight into the collapsing soul of America." – Sydney Morning Herald "Penny Arcade combines the anarchy of Lenny Bruce with the pathos of Judy Garland. She is provocative, intellectually stimulating, perceptive and hilariously funny." – The List, UK If there is an underlying thematic in all of Arcade’s work, it is perhaps this concern to advocate the full expression of our “life force”—creative, sexual, physically and verbally expressive—and to speak out against those societal and political forces that would repress such energizing self-realization. – Stephen Bottoms, University of Leeds, U.K
