"It packs a heftier punch in its well-produced package, dealing almost as often with sadness and suffering as it does with humour and high jinks. Garrihy laughs obligingly at every single one, and it’s a triumph that even when the jokes are old, or the timing woeful, there’s something winning about hearing, say, Anne Doyle land a punchline. Sometimes things aren’t that funny, but it helps to find a way to laugh."

"The Laughs of Your Life has a firm structure...What sets Garrihy’s format apart from others like it is the subject matter and the categories she has chosen to discuss. This mixture of humour and pathos draws us in and it has had me crying with laughter and sorrow. Every guest is there to tell their stories with a little help from the host and she’s always in control of the direction of the chat."
