Fluffy, Disappointing, Dated, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You’re a fan of Kids In The Hall or more specifically, Kevin McDonald. New fresh material, delivered with a smile and a good looking friend.

Don't see it if You’re looking for deeply honest or smart sharp comedy. This is light fluffy fun. Silly. Good for some giggles. Read more

Quirky, Nostalgic, Entertaining, Energetic, Hilarious

See it if u were a fan of Kids In The Hall & want to be tickled by an adult in a small recital hall, telling self-deprecating, funny, personal stories

Don't see it if you don't know or don't like Kids In the Hall [This show is strictly for fans!]; you hope for profundity or wholly original, new material.

Unusual, Indulgent, Hilarious, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if you like the voices, faces and wacky comical ways of Kevin as most know from TKITH. He shares reminiscences from the 80's to the present.

Don't see it if you expect him to be someone different - he is the same, just older, and brings his thoughts about the times related to life with some songs

Funny, Intelligent, Great writing, Clever, Absorbing

See it if Self-deprecating Canadian-TV actor stands alone in comic form with song. He looks back and names names.Fraught familial relationship is sad.

Don't see it if Funny/sad solo show, but it's the only way to share in his brilliant comedic mind in an intimate space (aboot 40 or so.) Lucky that. Read more

Ramshackle, Crowd pleasing, Fitfully amusing, Disappointing, Dated

See it if a fan of The Kids in the Hall ( I am); like self-deprecating humor; nostalgia.

Don't see it if not familiar with TKITH; are under 35 years old; want sharp humor; expect a polished production. Read more

Delightful, Refreshing, Hilarious, Funny, Entertaining

See it if Lots of laughs & good fun. Kevin MacDonald proves he belongs on the NYC comedy scene. I thoroughly enjoyed his storytelling & songs!

Don't see it if If you don’t like a comedy one-man show, this won’t be for you. Read more

Funny, Very likable guy

See it if McDonald is kind of warm and fuzzy even when he's yelling F You! in your face. Fun stories, excellent storyteller.Not your typical stand up.

Don't see it if Didn't love the songs-kind of silly & the point is dragged out, w/some Adam Sandleresque rhymes. All in all entertaining but not memorable.
