Appealing character, Appreciate the effort, Not very funny, Slow at times, Routine

See it if you appreciate an appealing performer's effort and a one person show about dealing with a loved one's terminal illness.

Don't see it if you expect a comedian to be funny rather than delve into the sad situation about the effects of a wife's illness on a husband and daughter.
