My overall impression

Believe me, this will be on your list of shows you’ll regret not seeing from this year’s festival, so just avoid the shame and embarrassment and GO SEE IT! I have gunk that has been deep in my lungs since I was a teenager that I laughed up on Friday night.

A solo show, largely improvised and stunningly raw. It’s a family affair with wacky parents, warring sisters, and a grandfather I’m pretty sure is like no one else. Hint: he gives his granddaughter a hand crafted gift that is meant to keep on giving but you won’t want it to…

The comedy of it is brilliant and the heart of it brutally honest. You should hear it and you should listen.
