Before and after their shows fans can often find the members shoulder to shoulder sharing a drink and discussing various topics with a group of fans. Hugo Mintz from Bring The Noise music blog wrote that The Silent Comedy "struck us as America’s slightly heavier and more interesting answer to UK’s Mumford and Sons, a diverse and engaging sound"
