Ambitious, Clever, Edgy, Profound, Raunchy

See it if On my tripe to nyc July this was a tremendous surprise to see in Queens at a small bar venue. Engulfed from scene one and left altered.

Don't see it if Only fault was lack of supporrt. Actor handles all cues and sound system was poor. The writing was profound and I sat close enough to hear

Ambitious, Edgy, Epic, Intense, Raunchy

See it if Well, have strong stomach. It's definitely not a Broadway musical. This is not a feel good song and dance, tragic, intense, dark humor.

Don't see it if You can't handle deeply offensive language and imagry, racial epithets and misogyny. Not a gratuitous word, but sensitive ears beware

Edgy, Thought-provoking, Raunchy, Quirky, Resonant

Absorbing, Ambitious, Raunchy, Riveting, Intelligent

See it if You dig a deep, deliberative discourse on death, drinking and "dickery!"

Don't see it if You don't.

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Edgy, Funny

Don't see it if see it!

Absorbing, Great acting, Original, Riveting

See it if You enjoy edgy, often hilarious multimedia tour de force that explores the dark side of the human condition, viewed from 'the other side'.

Don't see it if You are squeamish about 'spicy' language and subject matter, if not, you'll be riveted.

Absorbing, Enchanting

See it if You want to be truly entertained and fall into the mind of the character presented before you in this one man show.

Don't see it if You don't have an ear for bad language
