May 13, 2016 Theatre
Despite the seemingly impossible concept, Moore is on point from the get-go. He moves seamlessly from fantastical stand-up to bizarre sketch show with so little hesitation you barely notice the switch over. The show hits peak-madness two-thirds through, descending into an uncomfortable amalgam of silly and somber, saved by some surprise cameos. It comes together in the final minutes, but the journey’s long.
Overall, the show is pleasantly surprising and riotously entertaining. Moore manages to make his ludicrous concept work and keep a straight face. Not all the segments are stellar, but it makes for a smooth piece of comedic fiction that truly embraces the ridiculous.
So… I’m A Dad, until May 14th, Basement Theatre. Book tickets.
