Theatre is Easy
August 13th, 2016
For a previous production

"This chronological autobiography is interspersed with King’s stand-up routines at various venues on the 1980s New York circuit. King has clearly developed his set over the decades; these segments got the loudest guffaws of the night...Ultimately, the show's regressive gendered and racial views struck me as problematic, with several cringingly offensive moments. However what comes across throughout is King’s profound and sincere love for his father."
