WHAT CRITICS ARE SAYING ABOUT NANCY LOMBARDO!
"101st Congress of Unnatural Acts…Nancy Lombardo, a gifted impressionist whose riffs of Sally Struthers, Gracie Allen, Kate Hepburn and others click into each other to form an extremely funny necklace of vibrato-voiced characters." … John Michael Koroly, Fringe Propaganda
“Spunky, appealing and almost always amusing… Lombardo really crackles… In her quieter moments she can be dry, sly and just as effective.” … Bill Ervilino, New York Post
“The Jazz Housewife (comedian Nancy Lombardo) was one of my favorite performers, with her incongruous up-ending of the quotidian.”… Jon Wettingfeld, The Music Paper
“Nancy Lombardo raises our laughter quotient (and perhaps a few eyebrows) She steps far over the boundaries of what some might consider good taste, but the world she enters is one of pure comedy”.
Martin Schaeffer, New York Native

“Lombardo has so much energy and zest it’s impossible not to like her.” …Bob Harrington, New York Post
“Nancy Lombardo is an exceptionally talented actress, comedian and charmer. (Her) quick comebacks and creative repartee explore new comedy frontiers.” … Entertainment, N.Y.
“These hearty souls put on one hell of a show…..that not only put me more at ease but actually had me laughing and feeling pretty good by the end. I’d like to make a special mention of one particular comedian, Nancy Lombardo, who was engaging both on and off the stage.” ……Nycultureblog.com
“Funny, attractive, free spirited, Nancy Lombardo is wonderfully innocent.”
Ned Babcock, Woodstock Times
