Huntington Beach Library Theater is a charming local venue and every seat is a good seat. The one man play was hilarious and had my husband and I laughing throughout the performance. I am Italian and my husband is Jewish, I am a clinical...continued

Heard some of the jokes before, but the solo actor is quite versatile and makes the audience laugh a lot.

With my GPS I easily found the theater and a parking space.
The star did an outstanding job entertaining us for x-number of minutes. I never knew he had originally written those many stories and jokes which were stated by many over the years.

Had to buy tickets just based on the title of this show and we were not disappointed.
Funnier than heck due to the creative writing and superb monologue! My husband and I shared a lot of laughs along with the rest of audience, and neither one of...continued

I went with my mother and we needed handicapped seating. So we were in the back row, and a group of adults who were tall, drunk, and obnoxious sat in front of us, blocking our view. I did not care for the 1 man show. The jokes were very lowbrow. I...continued

We left with others at the intermission, it wasn't what we expected. A few good lines but overall a flop.

I am having a hard time explaining why this show fell flat. Probably I have been exposed to too much comedy, and most of the jokes were the same or variations of ones I've heard. I kept thinking I should be enjoying this, but something about the...continued

The first half started off a little slow with a few laughs and it picked up after intermission. Mostly older crowd. I think I would have enjoyed it more at a lower price point. Not a great value for the price paid even with Goldstar

The Huntington Beach Library stage was a very nice, clean and cozy theater to watch the play. Every seat has a good view of the stage. There was plenty of parking and easy access to the building. The play itself was funny and entertaining,...continued
