few quotes about Fast & Dirty:
are both solid performers on stage. Their writing has a certain
edge to it. These performers run the crowd through their paces."
-- Shane MacDougall, eye Weekly
"Demented musical sketch duo."
-- Jim Slotek, Toronto Sun
their act is solid, sophisticated, literate,
racy and impeccably paced. Theirs is not an easy genre in which
to excel. But these guys make it look that way. Danger is their
middle name, and they're sly. They will go far."
Daryl Jung, NOW Magazine
"I spent a lot of the time backstage
hanging out with the Fast and Dirty sketch comedy team of Robert
Hawke and Gord Oxley. Those guys were funny. No wonder they've
been nominated for a Gemini award with Skippy's Rangers for the
CBC show Sketchcom."
-- Joe Warmington, Toronto Sun
fine-tuned team of Robert Hawke and Gord Oxley broke out with
their deft combination of pernicious physicality, improv action,
musical obsession and intellectual frivolity. Upbeat, attractive
and clever as hell, their imagination escaped unchecked."
-- Daryl Jung, NOW Magazine
"Fast & Dirty has had a rocky climb towards the top of the comedy
heap. Oxley and Hawke get faster and dirtier."
-- Andrew Clark, Toronto Star
Jim Slotek, Toronto Sun

reactions to the February 1, 1999 episode of CBC's SketchCom featuring
Fast & Dirty with Serious Comedy For Oxymorons (note -- spelling
"Fast & Dirty's Raffi/Cohen Skit - This has got to be THE
funniest skit I have ever seen on sketchcom. The lyrics were brilliant!
any way I can get a copy of them?"

"this show sucks - Take this halfhour of garbage off the
air. Its not funny. Its pathatic to watch grown people act like
fools in front of millions of people. If this is the best the
cbc has to offer you might as well shut it down."
