What I liked

Truly engaging story – ranging from Hollywood to Vancouver to New York and then back. Relaxed, playful delivery and really very funny while central character looks at his own faults. The characters including the pot-selling nun, her right hand man Owen among others really came alive for us. Went with a group of friends and it was the perfect after dinner show at about 45 minutes in length with no intermission. In my own Defence – a great show about Meyer’s very interesting journey with his kids.

What I didn't like

No suggestions here – pacing, writing and delivery were really entertaining. Fun night.

My overall impression

Loved this show. Engaging, easy to watch and a full trip through 1980’s life in Hollywood. Images and characters very strong and Meyer is an engaging performer. Intimate space give you the relaxed feeling of being in your own living room – listening to your best story telling friend. Fun!
