The New York Times
August 16th, 2016

"Too much immediacy is the main trouble with another solo show, though. In George McAuliffe’s wacky lampoon ‘Not All Cops Are Bad,’ a white police officer named Scott Baker makes excuses to the public for his recent unprovoked violence. Afterward, I got scarcely more than a block down St. Marks Place before I ran into a Black Lives Matter protest, with a heavy police presence. The issue just feels too raw right now."

Theatre is Easy
August 18th, 2016

"McAuliffe creates a complete human with good intentions and a sympathetic, though absurd, backstory. The warts-and-all portrait he paints goes a long way towards disarming the audience, allowing for moments of genuine introspection...It is somewhat unfortunate, then, when the humor occasionally veers toward the mean...As satirical commentaries go, this one is closer to a live-action Christopher Guest movie than a George Orwell story."

For a previous production

"George McAuliffe uses a scorched-earth policy to great effect in his one-man show...McAuliffe builds an intensely flawed and human character as Baker...The performer dissects the deadly combination of American privilege, impulse and, sadly, the need for us as a society to have '40-year old men getting off on beating 20-year old men down'…Socially biting and black-hole funny, McAuliffe brings you in close and Baker doesn’t flinch."
