Theatre is Easy
January 27th, 2016

"The energy of the show wavered towards the end, and a line was flubbed here and there. But solo shows are one of the most exhausting (and scariest) challenges an artist can impose on themselves. And Foley met that challenge wonderfully...'Off the Desk' is a great antidote for anyone needing a good laugh. Otherwise, you should see this show just for Foley’s unique story."

"Foley takes the audience on a journey through his time as an intern until things began to crash with every wacky personality, intense party, and moments of truth in between...'Off the Desk: Tales of a Mediocre Stock Broker' may sound like something you’d likely stray away from but Foley’s story is quite remarkable."

"At the preview I attended, a few lines were flubbed. The routine seemed to lose some steam in its second half. And some references to long-gone entities carried the faint whiff of mildew. But these are minor quibbles, especially as successfully staging a solo show is among the theater’s greatest challenges. Chris Foley is a talented performer."

For a previous production

"Why do we need to hear another person’s sad journey through the challenges of picking a career that he wasn’t really interested in, getting sucked into a work schedule that wrecks a serious relationship, blowing LOTS of money on various addictive substances and strippers and almost killing himself? Because Chris Foley is funny, that’s why...I hear his remaining shows are sold out. I would try and get in anyway."
