This is an entertaining, yet troubling, journey through the colorful life of a committed and conflicted bachelor. This will Knott be the last we hear from Doug Knott. Knott to be missed.

My second time. I brought friends and they loved it. The story is disturbing, funny and tragic but you are never bored for a moment. Worth seeing!

Perhaps it's the 5 star rating that gave a certain level of expectation, so ... I'm sorry to say we were disappointed. Nevertheless, what can we expect for free admission, $7 service charge and $5 parking.

A funny, tragic story with dark humor and dramatic story elements that kept me engaged
throughout. Loved the way the writer/performer combined words.
