Wowwy wow! Brandon Raman is a superstar! How he didn’t break a sweat after that tour de force is beyond me. I laughed and cried and laughed some more. Brandon is so lovable and bananas talented, and this show was an excellent showcase for him. The direction was tight and they nailed tech elements. Gorgeous!... full review

I Can't Indian Good was one of the best shows at Hollywood Fringe this year!!! Brandon is a physical comedy genius; an expert at utilizing his whole body and the entire stage to express all the different characters throughout the show. Brandon has one of THE BEST acting performances at Hollywood Fringe. I was taken aback by his ability to truly transform between characters, distinguishing each character into vastly unique creative expressions. ... full review

This show exceeded my expectations. Although this was a one man show, Brandon skillfully introduced us to multiple characters with distinct personalities. ... full review

Brandon's show is entertaining, engaging, and a must-see, especially for those of us (myself included) who deal with hyphenated identities in this "American" bubble. His physical performance is unparalleled (damn, how do you do that?!) and his characters are carefully and thoughtfully crafted. ... full review
NICK PUPO certified reviewer June 17, 2023
Brandon is a true powerhouse, and I do not say that lightly. I've never seen a performer like him. This show is funny, compassionate, and beautifully executed. It's an entertaining and sincere piece of art, and it's completely original. Brandon writes and performs from the depths of his heart, with raw self-examination and curiosity, and from the very beginning of the show, it's impossible not to love him. Also, this dude is an acrobat. He moves like he's part of Cirque Du Soleil, and that's no exaggeration. I lost count of the number of talents he has. I think I stopped at like 40. His gentleness and thoughtfullness come through so clearly that by the end you are in tears and want to give him a big hug...an offer I'm sure he will take you... full review

What a wonderful show with a beautiful and important message! Brandon's story was uniquely his but also felt very relatable for me given my background and also what I know/have witnessed around the experiences of other people across the color spectrum. I love the various cultural, galactic, fantastical and other interesting elements he weaves throughout the play.... full review
FRANK MOBILIO certified reviewer June 13, 2023
Brandon is doing something very unique with “I Can’t Indian Good” - combining physical comedy, dance, and fight choreography with pure, character driven scenes that make you laugh, cry, laugh again, and then look inward and think about who you are and where you come from. he’s brilliant with the effortless transitions between all of the above and the meta use of hollywood and bollywood tropes to tell his own very personal story. this show is so good that i saw it twice and am hoping to be there for the 3rd performance as well. ... full review
