I try to be generous most of the time, but this show was very disappointing. I agree with other reviewers, the jokes are very dated/old & I found myself nodding off during the show. Only one actor portraying all the members of his family. This...continued

For the price of the tickets, I thought it was going to be a fabulous show. I was very disappointed. The material was old and boring. I wanted to leave, but I only stayed because I knew I could not get a refund. I would not recommend this event.

Although the audience in general seemed to find the material funny enough, I'm sorry to say that for me it was not the laugh fest I had anticipated.

I thought the show was mediocre... both in writing and performance. It was highly uneven, starting off with airport stories that I couldn't figure out had to do with parents or therapy. There were a lot of jokes about dealing with the elderly...continued

The theater is nice but this play that is really just 1 performer doing standup comedy of tired old jokes was simply awful. If this show were free it would not be worth the gas to get there. We left at intermission......would have left sooner but...continued

The title of the show sounded so funny...however, this one man stand-up comedy routine was not the performance I had envisioned when purchasing the ticket. Way too many bathroom & sex jokes. I'd like to get those 2 hours of my life back (not to...continued

The play was very funny, so cleverly written and the acting just great.
It recommend it highly. You will especially love it if you are Jewish, Italian or both!

Very nice theater. The show was fine. Not outstanding. It was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. The actor was very good. The show was full of jokes that we've all heard (as spelled out in the program).

It wasn't what I expected, but it was cute. Most of the jokes I had already heard. The actor was great and delivered his lines perfectly.

No story really. Just a bunch of jokes, some of them old, pieced together and told well.

He had some really funny lines. However, some of it was really "old stuff" and could easily been eliminated. The show would have been much better if it wasn't so long. It dragged part of the time. The second half was better than the first...continued

It is a one man show. I tend to enjoy performances with more people. He was very funny. Some people left during show and others never came back after intermission. If you are or know a lot about Italians, Jewish people or New York it is worth...continued

Mixed crowd of older and middle age people of both Jewish and non-Jewish - didn't realize it was a one-man show, and about halfway through, it was a bit of an overkill of Jewish humor. It belongs in a comedy club for about a 30-minute segment.

He's absolutely amazing!! I would recommend this show to everyone!! I went with my boyfriend and his mom. We can't stop repeating some of the one liners on the show. This show is a must!
