JIMMY H uncertified reviewer June 16, 2013
I can sum up my feelings about this performance in one word...WOW! With his voice alone, Les possesses the ability to bring us into his life and heart. I found myself hanging on every word that came out of his mouth. There were various stories told throughout the performance but all were tied together very nicely. The humor is subtle and hilarious. After the show I felt the need to give him a big hug and thank him for inviting me into his world. Most definitely a must see on your fringe list. Thanks Les!... full review

Les is a fantastic storyteller with fantastic stories to tell. His heartfelt humor shines through the difficult subject matter to create a smartly uplifting experience. I came away from this show loving his spirit and wanting to hug his mom. Well written and well performed. See it!... full review

I really enjoyed the stories and I was holding on tight on my journey to crazy town. One day, after I submit my mom to the crazy house, I'll be able to write a similar show about her. Thanks for letting us in to your life.... full review

I wish the actor related honestly to the audience rather than stare over our heads. I wish he had a better grasp on his material and wasn't struggling for lines. I wish it was funny, I wish there was emotional or vocal variety, I wish there had been even a single blackout so I didn't have to walk out in light. fringeblog.webs.com... full review
