Reviews for Soft Power

Frank Rizzo from Variety says:
“Offering solid support and mini-star turns of  his own, among a terrific all-Asian ensemble, is Jon Hoche.”

“a Family Guy character brought to life"

Mo Brady of The Ensemblist states:
“ Chief Justice, Jon Hoche leads the aforementioned Electoral College number with showmanship worthy of  Schoolhouse Rock.”

David Roberts of says:
“In the first act, there are multiple references to the American political process, including:...the foiblies of the electoral college with a stunning song-and-dance number by the Chief Justice ( an energentic and convivial Jon Hoche).”

Reviews for The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G

Jason Zinoman of the New York Times raves:
“Jon Hoche, who slyly interprets multiple comic roles with precision”

Martin Denton of states:
“Stealing the show constantly is Jon Hoche, who plays seemingly a zillion different antagonists to Hung and/or The Playwright including, most memorably, a Pimp straight out of Miss Saigon and furry Gookie Monster.”

“Jon Hoche is loveable and laughable as the “Gook Monster,” yet also intense in the various comic villainous characters he presents”

CultureFuture says:
“Particularly, your life will be enriched by watching the slapstick and energetic character performances of Jon Hoche. I could probably simply watch him for the rest of my life. Once you get ten minutes into the play, any time his face appears onstage you're already primed to laugh.”

Adam McGovern of ComicCritique says:
“…tenacious comedians Paco Tolson and Jon Hoche screw their incalculable chops to the shticking place”

Reviews for Titus Andronicus

Reviews for The Lady Drug Dealer and the Heist

Maura Kelley of says:
"Hoche is a comic genius when it comes to playing this type of guy."

Reviews for Soul Samurai

Jon Sobel from Blogcritics says this about Jon in Soul Samurai:
"there are many aspects worthy of note: the sweeping choreography during the first "Interlude" (actually a comic book-style origin story); Dewdrop and Sally's meet-cute scene; Hoche's turn as an arrogant preacher; and the climactic slow-motion battle between Dewdrop and her ultimate nemesis (who that turns out to be, I won't give away), to name a few."

VanLoan from NYC Onstage says this about Jon in Soul Samurai:
"Hoche displays great comic timing and his fabulous Super Fly fur coat is a highlight'

Aaron Riccio from New Theater Corps says this about Jon in Soul Samurai:
"Everybody has their moment: for Hoche, it's the level of expression in his eyes while playing the Masked Marcus"

Samantha O'Brien from says this about Jon in Soul Samurai:
"Particularly successful are the scene-stealing Tolson and Jon Hoche, who adds hilarious swagger to his roles (his pimp-like gang leader and one-eyed preacher shouldn’t be missed). The show seems just as much fun for the actors as the audience. You can’t even fault them when they break into an accidental chuckle."

Mark Peikert from Backstage says this about Jon in Soul Samurai:
"Sheldon Best and Jon Hoche, as various villains, lackeys, and saviors, are nothing short of astonishing in their versatility."

Dan Bacalzo from Theatermania says this about Jon in Soul Samurai:
"[Soul Samurai] includes plenty of plot twists and a variety of narrative strategies...My favorite is a puppet theater piece in which Sally tries to shut out the cries of the world -- represented by an adorable and expressive puppet designed by David Valentine, and manipulated and voiced by Jon Hoche."

Andy Propst from The Village Voice says this about Jon in Soul Samurai:
"The piece tweaks some obvious targets (Charlie's Angels and any number of Bruce Lee films) and some not so obvious, like blaxploitation films—which are deliciously skewered by Dewdrop's unlikely ally, Grandmaster Mack (Jon Hoche), portrayed as an Afro-sporting pimp replete with a striped burgundy fur coat."
