Joe tapper is a star!, Great acting, Great writing, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You like very quick paced personal stories. Joe is an absolute super talent! I was totally blown away by his performance. Just go see it!

Don't see it if Triggered by addiction/alcoholism. There’s also grief/death. Very minimal set with 2 other actors playing a dizzying amount of roles!
