"amateurish, tedious, pretentious"

COME HELL OR HIGH WATER THIS SICK WORLD WILL KNOW I WAS HERE

"Gregory Akerman invites us to accompany him on an explorative journey through his desire for fame and the ways in which this can be achieved. We consider how this same desire has shaped and largely been responsible for the way humanity has evolved. We look at the consequences of fame and, more importantly, of not achieving it. Through tracing over 150,000 years of human endeavour we ask whether this longing for an unrealisable future is essentially Gregory's long, intricate suicide note. But with jokes and shit"

This was the first solo show I done wrote and performed and it was alright, you know. It marked the first steps toward fucking off exclusive comedy and forcing as much learning into a show as possible which led to, amongst other things, being reviewed as “amateurish, tedious and pretentious”. Needless to say, I was fucking delighted at this.

The show received a four, a three and a two star review.
