What I liked

It’s very funny. It starts out as a simple medical lecture but it quickly goes off the rails and gets more and more bizarre and postmodern. I loved the way it incorporated video in the performance (and the videos are often the funniest bits). David Kane is a gifted comedic writer.

What I didn't like

It could use some tightening up, and the pace quickened. There were some missed cues and the comic timing was sometimes off. As a performer, Kane is funny but he seems a little timid. This show could be absolutely brilliant if he works on his timing and lets himself just go completely nuts in the show’s darker moments.

My overall impression

The most gonzo, surreal medical lecture ever. Highly recommended if you like absurdist humor.
