What I liked

It was the perfect length for its needs, its humor was grounded and honest, the build and release was so sound it was almost mathematical, the performer was tremendously talented, and charm, wit, and love shone throughout.

What I didn't like

Space limitations exist, but occasionally the lighting was a bit jarring, particularly the yellow-green. I think, also, it could be fun to play with (for both the existing jokes and possible jokes to come), playing with the idea of which jokes Daniel laughs at, which he doesn’t, and which don’t occur to him as jokes at all. Just an interesting idea.

My overall impression

This production was excellent. It was remarkably well-paced, engaging, and beautifully performed.
