Don't see it if If you want a linear play, one that has story from start to finish. actor with multiple characters.
See it if you want to see a talented, amiable Canadian raconteur tell some true tales from his time as a nascent bartender in a passé British resort.
Don't see it if u don't have patience for non-linear storytelling (which eventually comes together) or theatre of the mind (as no props/sets are employed).
See it if You enjoy memoir stories. You like one actor playing multiple characters. You like coming of age stories. You want to be entertained.
Don't see it if You prefer clearer storytelling: the mini-stories don't merge until the very end. Before that happens, it's hard to see the connection.
See it if you want to hear from a good story teller who speaks the bar language fast building good visuals in your head from a bare stage.
Don't see it if you expect a conclusion. There is a lot of repetition in this short presentation and it falls a bit short.
See it if Canadian perspective of Brit culture as told to an American audience. Bartender tending tales from the front lines. Multiple characters.
Don't see it if Confusing stream of consciousness which eventually has a point, but asks much from the audience to sort out for duration. Really fast/Showy.
See it if You want to see a man with interesting stories talk about them on stage.
Don't see it if The tropes used get repetitive and convoluted. His circular story telling is confusing and doesn't come together until the very end.

Also TJ was clever, but I found the show a bit boring.
See it if you enjoy good old-fashioned storytelling... or bartenders or Canadians.
Don't see it if you want a clear story with a beginning, a middle and an end. This is somewhat random and pointless, but enjoyable throughout.

Don't see it if you want a linear plot, more cast members, a physical set, a big show or musical
Also Tales from life at a rapid pace. Well done!
See it if A breezy one-man show with lots of accents, storytelling and lots of pints, told by a charming performer
