Sincere and amusing. But not quite compelling.

Though there were some good moments (and the set is terrific for such a small show), this autobiographical memoir never really finds its feet -- or its direction. A collection of memories does not a show make. Some editing and focus is required.

Funny solo performance.

Well acted with a good story that kept my interest throughout.

The performer was a good piano player and singer and songwriter, too.

Fortunately, although there was music interspersed throughout, this was not a...continued

This play was dreadful and long winded and made little temporal sense. No women who are barefoot and pregnant, no commercial dryers, no dishwashers in St. Louis in the 90's? - doubtful. Had I sat closer to the exit, I would have left.

Well, I had a hard time staying awake.
The good news is the author is young, and may improve.
Everything he talked about wasn't that funny or shocking.
If you're a David Sedaris wanna be, you have a long ways to go.
I'm afraid your family life...continued

Tender and funny performance by a wonderful writer. I look forward to hearing more of his work. Insightful, and such a creative talent! Venue very warm and intimate, and the evening was a pleasure from start to end.

Graham did a fine job wit the material that was there but there wasn't enough personal material to hold my interest and it was not clear to me how Graham's early life has shaped who he is now or why he escaped and where he escaped to.

I saw this show during its first run and thought it couldn't get any better, but the second run is even more amazing! The performance, the stories, the set, sound design, lights, everything... Stop reading now and just get your tickets before...continued

My friends and I all loved the show! Graham Gremore's storytelling was hilarious and captivating right from the very first line, and the music added so much to the experience. There was one song in particular that was so outrageous it would be...continued

It was just okay. Maybe I didn't know what to expect from a one man story telling show. I had expected him to get up there and tell us stories, as if he were actually talking to us at a social gathering. If we laugh a lot at one point, I would...continued

A humorous and maybe more often poignant story collage created by a talented writer/performer. Presented as a series of comic vignettes, this show is more multi-layered than it first appears. The juxtaposition of individual stories reminded me of...continued

Graham is a shining star! I enjoyed his hilarious *non*fictional stories about his childhood and adolescence. His experiences are truly ones with which we can all identify, and his word choices are spot on. (At one point, he used the word...continued

Graham is so talented and funny. I brought my 2 teenage daughters (16 & 17) there to celebrate Mother's Day yesterday. We all enjoyed the entire show very much. It's seldom that my girls will enjoy anything that I like, he is really good. The show...continued

My third time seeing the show! Gremore is truly a unique new voice in American theatre. His weaving of stories, songs, and recorded phone messages is an intricate tapestry of the personal and universal in human experience. And I'm still humming...continued
