Pretty funny show. I enjoyed the concept and the suggestions offered for "self-help" and would definitely recommend.

Started out really funny, but lost some energy as the performance moved along. The question/answer session had some great moments. This was the first preview night so with some fine-tuning this could be excellent.

Unique, unexpected and thoroughly entertaining! Thank you Kurt/Steve for not doing one of those ME-ME-ME solo shows, or for not couching it that way anyway. Excellent writing and acting. Highly recommended!

Fun send-up of self-help workshops and their leaders.

I especially liked how the pretend self-help guru, in spite of his positive attitude, was failing at real life.

Kurt Bodden's show was very funny...a nice parody on self-help guru's who try to make others better while they have some of the same foibles as the rest of us. This is a... continued

To be seen and for people who have been "sucked" into motivational seminar, it is almost a laugh per minute.

Steve Seabrook was a mixture of truths and total truths. That is... he kept me smiling and flat out laughing for 70 minutes with his spot on take on motivational... continued

Kurt did a great job making fun of the self help and self empowering industry. His delivery is right on and his personality shines through. Highly recommended.

Fun, entertaining show, with audience participation and some improv, so it will never be the same. Really enjoyed it and small, intimate theater adds to the experience.

Totally enjoyable. 4 of us went together and we all thought it was a great show. Kurt's body language and facial expressions oozed sleaze, just what one would expect... continued

Wonderful, wonderful performance. I went expecting an out-and-out parody, and was prepared for a fun, slightly mean-spirited spoof on a self-help guru. Instead, we were... continued

Clever and inventive comedy with an edge, polished and funny, that mimicked self-help gurus very well. Small intimate theater with no bad seats. Very good interaction with the audience. A pleasant and engaging evening.

So very clever. My son who is into these self-help gurus (ie. Tony Robbins) was able to laugh at himself. Do not miss his show.
