"Hilarious ... and performed with 100% commitment. Like genius-buffoon Melissa McCarthy, Thoreson is a determined participant in her world ... What I most enjoy about Thoreson is the quiet intelligence underlying all her jokes. She's witty, yes, and that's what we want, but she's smart, too."

- Laura Jones, The Austin Chronicle

"Don't miss Loverboy('s) fast, hilarious improv"

- Thrillist, The Best Comedy Theaters and Shows In Austin

"[The stories] were a gold mine of details, it was delicious seeing how many of them the Loverboy women could extract and set in their own scenes, like gems in a crown...Loverboy's members built [scenes] together, in quick, deft strokes."

- Robert Faires, The Austin Chronicle

ColdTowne's small space, Loverboy's super-high energy, and the personal nature of the guests' stories preserve the show's spontaneity and closeness...a fun show with solid laughs…

- Ashley Moreno, The Austin Chronicle
