"Now this young man had it all, coming from Wellington he definitely had his quirks and wasn’t afraid to let them to work to his advantage. He bonded with the audience beautifully, opening up completely to them before throwing in a punchline that knocked the crowd… well… “out of their socks” seems fitting. I believe James has nothing to worry about with his future, he is less of a rising star, and more of a shining star." -Shout Out Magazine, AotearoHA Rising Stars, 2015

"James Malcolm brings us the loudest laughs including multiple outbursts of applause, and his deconstruction of Miley Cyrus lyrics has me in tears." -Ruminator, Wellington Raw Comedy Quest Final, 2014
