"Richie Stratton was the star. You could tell he’s done this stuff hundreds of times – including on [a] previous Warped tour – and has it down to a tee. He looks like a chipmunk and makes the most of it, endearing himself to everyone in the room with a dark, sharp, self-deprecating wit and a pronounced fondness for female mammaries. Sipping contentedly from his pint, he harked back to his meetings with the guidance counselor at school and his determination to find a job at which he’d only have to work minutes a day and could drink while doing so. That, I guess, is what makes it punk rock – that these people have found a way to avoid the nine to five and maybe even make a living by doing what they enjoy naturally: making the rest of us laugh." -Tony Fletcher iJamming.com

“...Richie is one of the brightest young comics I’ve seen in 11 years hosting the show... He’s got great timing, a fresh outlook, and he connects with audiences of all ages. This young man is going far!” -Robin Jordan 95.5 KMBR-FM/Butte, Mt

“I saw Richie Stratton— a bouncy, upbeat patterer who gives lie to the cliché that all comics are secretly bitter, doomed men — three times in a month and never heard him do the same joke twice.” -MARTY SMITH of the PortlandTribune/Portland, OR
