What I liked

The dedication Chris gives makes this show a real thinker while you laugh many times, as is normal with Chris. And while Scarlet is the foil he uses, it’s Chris that you end up caring about, and you leave with many ideas to ponder. the meta aspect of the comedy made it enjoyable as he tested and bent ideas, putting them on their heads.

It’s clear that Chris poured his heart and soul into this important topic, in an effort to make the world better.

Also: the part where racism was solved was a highlight.

What I didn't like

Note: I saw this on a preview night.

I’d be excited to see this again. There are so many compounding levels to what he achieved here, even an audience giving complete attention might be a little confused with parts, but in the end, the message is still clear. He comes at you from so many angles, i probably missed something i could have caught onto earlier, like the devolving audio prompts, which were hilarious.

I do have a feeling this chaos was a tool, even if i didn’t realize it at first.

My overall impression

Chris is a great voice and this production was deep and touched on many social issues, with his sense of humor giving much needed breaks while digesting the content.
