"The pitch-perfect, multi-talented Martin seamlessly floats between multiple costumes, personae and skits, never once leaving the stage, and carrying the calm of a seasoned performer”
– The New York Times

“One of the scene’s brightest lights is this lady with the powerful voice, the great comic chops, and the endless drive to entertain. At spots like Club Cumming—and spaces in cities from New Orleans to Adelaide, Australia—she’s trotted out her gifts, specializing in doling out spoofy homages to divas like Bette Midler and Reba McEntire. She deserves to be in the same league.”
- Michael Musto

“Big, moving Bessie Smith-like sound” “chill-inducing”
"A powerful woman whose heightened sense of the ridiculous goes head to head with her distinctly American voice”
“Her fullness of voice and spot-on characterizations put the show in another dimension.”
– The New Yorker
