I could have sat for at least another hour listening to this charming storyteller. I laughed a lot, cried a little- and have you seen his eyes? Jonathan expertly takes his riders on a memorable journey, slowly letting us into his heart in this refreshingly vulnerable and human one man play. The writing is lovely, smart but not high brow- the delivery is casual and intimate and you'll hang on his every word. Best traffic jam ever.... full review

Johnathan is a high-energy, honest and poignant storyteller who took us on a journey - both literally and figuratively - through the jungle of LA. He paints vivid characters and real emotions that are still with me now. Go see this show! You’ll never look at a Lyft ride the same way again. :-)... full review

As a regular Uber rider, I was very excited to see this show, based on how much weird stuff I personally encounter on my trips. To my delight, the author/performer turned even the worst of his driving experiences into positive lessons for himself. Not only we laugh or gasp listening about his adventures, but also feel for him and almost cry, when he sincerely talks about his relationships, fears, and self-doubt. The show is totally funny and entertaining, but also makes you think and look for examples in your own life. I strongly recommend seeing it.... full review

This was an excellent story of how Ltft/Uber forcing us to become a whole community, flaws and all. Johnathan is a fantastic storytelling, very animated. This is an award considered show.... full review

You are in for the ride of your life! It was a modern satire. A 58 min trip around the world of emotions, truths, and change of societal times. This solo act is definitely AWESOMERIFICALLY AWARD WORTHY!... full review

Thoroughly enjoyable and moving piece. From the moment you walk into the theatre you feel at ease with the performer and excited for the journey ahead. Johnathon Tipton Meyer eases you in with delightful and hilarious anecdotes before taking you into the darker areas of humanity - some i was thankful for the reminder, and others shocked that I had been so unaware. The piece really highlights how we should value our connection to, and faith in, each other and how even the simplest things in life can provide such joy and positivity. Thank you for the ride.. and y'know.. I guess I really SHOULD give Coldplay another chance .. ... full review

"Hun, what's your name? Miyo? Nice to meet you, Miyo! Have a seat." When I sat and buckled up, I already knew this would be a fun ride, a bumpy one! And it was! Jonathan's show was funny, educational, vulnerable, entertaining, touching, engaging...I was surprised how fast one hour flew by! ... full review

5 stars to this Uber ride! From the very beginning when Jonathan brings you into the theatre to start our “Uber Pool” of a theatre experience, you know you are in safe hands. Jonathan says it best in the play (I might be paraphrasing), “when you are in my car, you are as important as my family,” and I really felt that was the truth. Connecting parallels of his life experiences to the frustrations of Uber driving in a city that is growing further apart drove home an emotional point about who we all are as people. ... full review
