Riveting, Raunchy, Hilarious, Edgy, Entertaining

See it if you remember John Belushi, if you are a "Boomer", if you want to see how he became who he was.

Don't see it if You are a millennial or a Gen Z. You probably have no idea who he was and if you do, it is because you parents and (horrors) grandparents d Read more

Needs better direction and staging, Great singing, Ambitious, Entertaining

See it if you are willing to tolerate direction that does not meet the demands of this incredibly complex show/topic.

Don't see it if a great band, excellent singing, solid acting are not enough to hold your interests. Or you don't know comedy history(and don't want to) Read more

The actor playing the improv legend needs a strong director's disciplined approach, Holds great potential but still very rough!, A show that is still searching for its true identity: one-man show or ensemble cast?, Needs a professional playwright's intervention

See it if You loved John Belushi the comedian who died too young. The show barely hints at the real man behind the outrageous behavior and drug abuse.

Don't see it if You expect a polished, thoroughly workshopped show. What's on display is still a very rough draft on what could become a good bio-pic film. Read more
