Isobel Lewis Independent (UK) Purists might feel that the Netflixisation of Demetriou’s comedy has slightly dampened his shine, but anything that brings his work to more people is a good thing. Rated: 3/5 Mar 1, 2023 Full Review Chris Bennion Daily Telegraph (UK) An enjoyable snack for Demetriou fans but one that leaves you with the feeling of “yes, and what now?”... Rated: 3/5 Mar 1, 2023 Full Review Clare Martin Paste Magazine Most of "A Whole Lifetime" disappoints. There are funny one-liners, and Demetriou’s slapstick is charming as ever, but the disparate pieces don’t come together as well as you’d hope. But hey, that’s life. Rated: 6/10 May 11, 2023 Full Review Sean L. McCarthy Decider There’s enough here for any Stath fan to love, and anyone unfamiliar with Demetriou to go looking for more afterward. Mar 3, 2023 Full Review Keith Watson metro.co.uk Jamie Demetriou is certainly possessed of a scattershot comic imagination that misses as well as hits. But when he hits, he’s very funny. Mar 2, 2023 Full Review Ricky Valero Ready Steady Cut Overall, A Whole Lifetime with Jamie Demetriou fell flat with the poor attempt at humor, lackluster writing, and ultimately unfunny skits. Rated: 1.5/5 Feb 28, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Jennifer C I just love this guy's sense of humour. The absurdity of some of the details really gets me. I particularly enjoyed the insecure best man - felt more like an embarrassing human truth. I'm not sure Act 3 was as good so I'm giving it 4 stars! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/24 Full Review Pood L Absolute gem! Hilarious and unique. I loved it. So glad it found its way to recommended views. It's more English humor than American I suppose, which may account for the weird critic score. It's less WOW than you might see on American TV - for example, in one scene, a character gently tries to strangle and choke humble bragging friends. It's a very non-violent and awesome kind of strangling. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/01/23 Full Review lorrainesilvers s The least funny offering from the UK like EVER!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/23/23 Full Review Burden Of T Jamie's venture into surrealist sketch/musical comedy is mostly a hit. As comedy is subjective it's difficult to pin a project as bizarre as this into 'yeah it's definitely funny' or not. But, personally, I am all for absurdist, weird humour as it tickles me in all the right areas. 'A whole lifetime' takes the best parts of Jamie's range and fits it into a surprisingly coherent narrative structure. The theme of life and death is a fitting way to frame a comedy special like this, and the almost-hour long runtime doesn't feel it at all. There are a couple of sketches that drag on a little long (social-media obsessed teens, best man stag do) and some that are so hilarious I wanted more (kiss villa, strangle-dad). So, as is the unwritten rule of sketch comedy, there will always be hits and misses, and in this case, mostly a ruddy good time. Howly Parker.
