Delightful, Quirky, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if The show is about his life and how he got to Double Dare after DD. Funny show with some of the audience plays DD games.

Don't see it if If you don't know about the play you make feel you can go, not true this is enjoyable for everyone.

Resonant, Refreshing, Great writing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You grew up watching Marc on tv/want to hear about his unique/very relatable life story (anxiety/OCD, fear of failure). Don’t miss this one!

Don't see it if There’s some music, many surprises, audience participation, and it’s just so fun to see him living one of his dreams of performing. Go Marc!

Funny, Nostalgic, Entertaining, Clever, Delightful

See it if You're a 90s kid that watched Nickelodeon every day as a kid. You're into autobiographical one-person shows (with a fun twist!)

Don't see it if You have little interest in Marc Summers and finding out more about him isn't your thing. You're looking for something deep.

Resonant, Entertaining, Clever, Delightful, Refreshing

See it if You remember Marc Summer, from any of his many offerings. This fun, messy trip down memory lane achieves that elusive WE CARE. Go see!

Don't see it if You have no idea who Marc Summers is or Nickelodeon or The Food Network or just don’t care to see a quirky story of one guy making it.

Absorbing, Delightful, Resonant, Nostalgic, Entertaining

See it if You were a child of the 80s / 90s as it's full of nostalgia. Cleverly produced, guests learn about the man behind the celebrated shows.

Don't see it if You're expecting a kid's show. While there are games involved, it's more of a man behind the mask reveal than a game show.

Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if You want to see a funny show! Brought back memories of kids watching show when they were young. Audience participation too!

Don't see it if I don't think there is any reason not to see this show, unless you don't want to hear what it is like to suffer from OCD.
