Brian Copeland has done it again..provided social commentary about a serious subject in an amusing yet sensitive manner. The sold out house gave a standing ovation to this "beautiful mind"!

I was afraid to see this show because of the subject matter but it was really well written, extremely humorous, touching, poignant and excellently presented. Brian Copeland is terrific.

What a show! The 75 minutes flew by. Brian's performance was emotionally engaging and honest in dealing with depression. I could feel his pain and his stuckness. And I enjoyed getting to know his characters!
