Loved, loved, loved it. From the beginning (which I could only appreciate later) to the end. Outstanding.... full review
DAGMAR STANSOVA certified reviewer June 24, 2019
The show was refreshing, engaging and fun to witness and most of all unpredictable. Ben has a sweetness and vulnerability which really made me care about this failing desperado salesman character. I loved that he made us, the audience participate in his own disincorporation. ... full review
BILLY RAY BREWTON certified reviewer June 25, 2019
A spectacularly weird and plotted tale of capitalism, corporate greed, and American values, with the aloofly charming Ben Nicholson leading the charge.... full review
VICTOR SOTOMAYOR certified reviewer June 25, 2019
Trying to explain the Last Powerpoint in simple terms is like trying to explain Ben’s beautiful mind. I cannot. You just gotta break all your preconceptions of what a PowerPoint presentation is and come for the chaos. All I gotta say is that Pam is not having any fun running Ben’s tech.... full review

Ben Nicholson has created a comic work that on its face looks like a frustrated young salesmen that has been put in his place by an irate tech guru (played by stage manager Pam Noles), who has not been paid for their services. This one is so much fun and was the perfect culmination to an interesting day of fringing.... full review
HEATHER KOZLAKOWSKI certified reviewer June 25, 2019
An adorable, purposefully uncomfortable look into work, life and death. The Last Power Point brings a fun, potato-based, perspective into what work-life-balance really means. ... full review

tagged as: GO SEE IT · dark · existentialist · hilarious
So good in so many ways. It's dark, ironic, absurd, hilarious, poignant with an existentialist twist. Ben manages to pack heavy themes into a show that feels playful and funny and afterwards forces you to actually think about your life and what you should do with your time on earth. ... full review
