Village Voice
Punching the Clown mirrors Henry's act: a minor triumph whose cult following doesn't yet know it exists. Full Review

New York Daily News
Every aspiring performer will appreciate Gregori Viens' unassuming comedy, which cheerfully skewers industry pretensions and media-fueled trends. Full Review
Eric Hynes
Time Out New York
While never uproarious, Punching the Clown exudes the clever, warped sincerity of its star, eschewing uppercuts for a series of playful jabs. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
Although its sendup of L.A.'s shallow, self-absorbed show business culture is not exactly revelatory, the film does deliver solid laughs, many of them thanks to Philips' wittily provocative, surprisingly hostile confessional ditties. Full Review
Kyle Smith
New York Post
See his movie now, brag about your discerning taste for undiscovered talent later. Full Review
