What I liked

Nick’s stage presence made it easy for me to join him for this brilliant story. I loved the physicality in this show. I was laughing when he ran around stage to dramatize burping, afraid when his character was threatened with a taser, and a combination of laughing and afraid when he was creeping into a room with hamsters. This should be made into a Netflix special! Netflix, are you listening? He needs to be writing and starring in everything.

What I didn't like

I think it should be longer, because it was so good I didn’t want it to end.

My overall impression

The charismatic Nick did an incredible job laying out the darkness of addiction with a proper level of humor, insanity, and coolness. The play made me reflect on the power of friendship, the consequences of lying, how one gets into heroine, and how amazing Nick is as a writer/ actor. He gave us just the right amount of pieces to follow him on a journey of torture and relief. I felt comfortable being carried by him in the show. This needs to be a Netflix Special.
