Chicago Tribune - Recommended

"...Considering that Clarkson and Turner have been puttering with this Potter parody since 2005, it's remarkable that the show still feels fresh and spontaneous. Both men understand that a large part of the show's charm lies in letting us see them as overgrown nerds who are eager to please the audience even as they end up covered in Silly String and cake. "Potted Potter" takes good-natured potshots at the excesses of its source material while still letting the Muggles in on the fun."

"...Clarkson and Turner know their Potter backward and forward, a fact that left my 11-year-old daughter and many other well-versed fans giggling throughout the show. The duo have that strong comic chemistry one associates with teams like the Smothers Brothers, Martin & Lewis, and Peter Cook and Dudley Moore."

"...“Potted Potter: The unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff” is absolutely hilarious. I laughed so hard my cheeks hurt! It doesn’t matter if you’ve read the Harry Potter books or not, Dan and Jeff will put you smack in the middle of the Hogwarts story – sometimes literally! “Potted Potter” is a terrific family friendly holiday option."

NewCity Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...The show culminates in a lounge act-style duet between He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and the Boy Wizard sung to the tune "I Will Survive." It's corny, goofy, and, like the entire production, a whole lot of fun. There may very well be a direct relationship between your enjoyment of the original Harry Potter series and this parody. I, for example, consider myself a casual fan and thought it rather good. My twelve year old daughter, a Potter fanatic, considered it amazing. Only a true Muggle, though, would walk out without a smile."

Chicago Theatre Review - Recommended

"...The sets, props and costumes aren’t terribly elaborate (except for one very funny Golden Snitch outfit). Wigs, puppets, a simple video presentation and silly string sometimes take the place of any real innovative comedy. But still, this show is entertaining and often quite funny, primarily because of its two energetic, charismatic writer/performers. In the end, the show does what it set out to accomplish: while poking fun at the Potterheads in the audience, the production celebrates what makes the Harry Potter series so wonderful and unforgettable, and may even motivate some theatergoers to finally pick up the books and discover the Boy Wizard firsthand."

Chicago Theater Beat - Highly Recommended

"...Potted Potter is a fast romp embedded with uproarious energy, and a testament to the power of creativity. With only a few props and costumes, a little over an hour and their own madcap humor, Clarkson and Turner transport audience members young and old to a world of wizardry. Hop on the Hogwarts train (platform nine and three-quarters, remember) and make a trip to the Broadway Playhouse this month. Whether you’re a hardcore Harry Potter fan or an unfamiliar newbie, you’ll laugh from beginning to end."
