WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
"Bruce is immediately likeable as he strolls from table to table greeting old friends and making new ones. He is boyish and at the same time slick and experienced. There's wonderment and shrewd discernment in his eyes. In short, Kalver is a smooth professional. In improvisation, he is unpredictable, satisfying and real. part comedian, part psychologist, he moves with wit, confidence and east. You have to have faith in yourself if you end up pumping milk from a faucet attached to a volunteer's forehead; or burning up borrowed hundred dollar bills; or slicing a girl into three distinct parts while she sings "You Do Something to Me. Kalver doesn't belabor his talent or the point to his act. He just lets it play. In fact, he is rather direct and uncomplicated about it."
-- Providence Journal
