SWEET
Bob’s Holiday Party has a thin storyline, but mostly it is a series of sketches, shticks and gags held together by binge drinking, mass fornication and food fights. In short, like every good holiday show it has something for everyone.

BITTER
Bob’s Holiday Office Party, now in its 17th season, is basically a fifteen-minute Carol Burnett Show-type sketch stretched out to about 100 minutes. And unless a new director is brought on board, last night will remain my first and last experience at the party.
Tony Frankel- Stage and Cinema

SWEET
Though this year’s cast might not be the production’s absolute strongest, this crazy stew of sight gags, throwaway one-liners and set pieces gives plenty of opportunities for many of its performers to shine, including two Ann Randolph cameos, in her dual role as Carol the neurasthenic folksinger and Brandy the town slut/beautician.
Mindy Farabee – LA Weekly

SWEET
This play sells out every year. But so many of the returning audience members are laughing so hard at the jokes, at times both crude and lewd, that it became difficult to hear some of the lines.
