File in because the wedding reception is just about to get started, and the groom’s brother is about to give the best worst Best Man speech you’ve ever seen!

LA comedian Mark Vigeant brings the audience into an immersive, absurdist, and drunken wedding reception as the groom’s brother Paul, who – over the course of an increasingly chaotic hour – crumbles into an existential crisis fueled by toxic masculinity and loneliness. In his desperate attempts to show his brother his love, he can’t help but confront the lack of love he has for himself. 

Directed by Joanna Simmons, who also directed Vigeant’s previous solo show Mark Pleases You, which won Best of Fringe at the San Diego Fringe Festival in 2023, Best of Broadwater at the Hollywood Fringe Festival in 2023, and appeared as part of the New York Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.


“it’s the most enjoyable cringe I’ve ever experienced, and I loved every second of it.”

– Tara McEntee,


“a calculated, perfectly timed slide into insanity that convinces you this could really happen to anybody under the wrong pressures.”

Elliott Lam,


“The highlight of the show… is the Best Man solo dance… It is right up there with Ricky Gervaise’s jaw-dropping animalistic dance in The Office.”

– Dave Smith,
