My friend and I certainly enjoyed this yet we wanted to love it based on all of the reviews. He is certainly very talented and energetic. He keeps you engaged the entire time with the pace and different characters. I guess we were expecting it...continued

Very funny and heartfelt. At first you think since Don's dad was a pimp, it would be very sordid but I left feeling his dad really loved him. I felt his dad knew Don could raise above and was going to make sure he did. Very enjoyable.

Obviously a lot of work went into this life story. However 100 minutes without an intermission is stretching it. At times (sorry) it was a drag. The moral at the end was alsmost worth waiting for but not quite. I did'nt enjoy every minute of...continued

A skilled performer, but the show needs to be cut by about 20 minutes. It's a little slow starting, but it finishes well. Plus it's a fascinating look at a childhood spent under two competing influences.

This was the second time attending this event. I had to come back with other friends it was that good. Don is an extraordinary performer who makes you laugh and cry. I was amazed at how much I laughed even the second time and how deeply moved I...continued

This guy is a brilliant performer. I loved how he highlighted moments of his childhood with classic funk of the 70s; the music I grew up with as a child in Oakland. His characterizations of members of his family were hilarious!

Don Reed is simply the best.
I brought friends visiting from Scotland, and several other "first timers", and we all agree: don't miss this show!

Excellent show! Don's love for his family and his hometown permeates the shows script and well-drawn characters. I found the show to be both funny and heartwarming. I've already recommended it to several friends and family members!

I loved the show, performer was great, set simple. Grew up in the streets of Richmond and visited Oakland often and knew of the references that he made.

Very intimate seating, around 100 seats, some plush auditorium style and some metal...continued

This show is fantastic! In the top three of shows we've seen at the Marsh. Moving to Berkeley Marsh next. Funny, poignant, thoughtful. Not to be missed.

This is a "must see" performancet. The Marsh has a new star in its firmament to add to the likes of Margo Gomez, Charlie Varon, Josh Kornbluth, Dan Hoyle and Rick Reynolds who either created new works there or got a career boost up. ...continued

If half stars were an option, I would have given this show 3.5 but would rather round up than down based on the fabulous performance. Great energy, characterizations and blocking. My issue is with the script. The writing could be tighter and...continued

Don Reed is a master of physical comedy with a "rubber face" not unlike Jim Carey. He brings multiple characters to life as he relates a story about his early life on E. 14th St. and brings his story to a poignant conclusion sharing some...continued

Well done one man performance. Interesting and unusual content, well-performed.

The Marsh is a small venue, so for good seats, arrive early.
