Really enjoyed this show! The story was simultaneously poignant and funny. The humor managed to be sharp and witty without being raunchy. The performance was excellent with Gerald seamlessly transforming from one character to the next. I would highly recommend and would definitely see again.... full review

This was well worth the trouble.... full review

I really enjoyed this show! Gerald is fantastic at playing characters and he plays a range of characters with great ease. He really takes you into his world, and after seeing the show, I feel like I have a good sense about him as a person and there's a lot to like about him. He's a real coconut!... full review

Viva Gerald! This show is the summation of why I love the Hollywood Fringe Festival. A masterclass in storytelling, EL ULTIMO COCONUT excels in its deliver propelled forward by sharp writing and tremendous heart. This performance, had me tearing up one moment and gut busting laughing the next. Please I implore you, don't let this diamond in the rough pass you by.... full review
