MICHAEL SHAW FISHER certified reviewer June 09, 2019
Go see it. And here’s why: Ed Goodman has created the single LEAST pretentious one person show I have ever seen. His number one priority is to make sure his show is funny (also insightful, clever and fearless of course but none of that matters to Ed if it doesn’t end in laughter.) “Brainwashing” is also part of Ed’s personal campaign to raise his audiences awareness about the absurdity of the social/political world which they are entrenched – the man, like Mark Twain, he holds no punches and just wants HONESTY. “Brainwashing” also lands because the ever-unprepared Ed embraces the chaos of his own mind and shows us what a wonderfully zany place it is.

At one point Ed says “What have I done and why did I do it?” I would add “What did I see and why did I enjoy it?” I can’t describe this show.

After a thorough washing of my brain, I now have the psychological clarity to confirm: Ed Goodman is not only ol' timey, but good timey; Ed Goodman is, in fact, a good man. Also, this is the best solo play ever written because it allowed me to hold a fake gun to Ed's head for 5 minutes, after which the audience demanded I pull the trigger.... full review

A peek into the jumbled hilarious chaos that is Ed Goodman's mind. Will it be organized or polished? Nope. Will it be a total delight? Absolutely. Come enjoy the embodiment of joy that is Ed.... full review

There is a lot of gold to mine from this show. Sometimes the show gets in the way of the excavation efforts. But this show has so many good anecdotes and clever bits and a truly brilliant and surprising ending that I found it well worth my while. ... full review
