Storyline

In this brilliant one-man show, the mild-mannered, thirty-something Steven Banks arrives home after a long day at his dead-end corporate job, still dreaming of being a rock star. Steven receives a message on his machine from his boss, Mr. Buttle, informing him that he never received an urgent speech Steven wrote for the board of directors. Steven must scramble to write a new one, but he has less than an hour to do it. Along the way, he continually procrastinates and distracts himself from the task at hand, playing with toys and various musical instruments, baking cookies, putting on costumes, leafing through an old high school yearbook and performing some hilarious original songs along the way. Meanwhile, he's got to deal with his grumpy landlord Mr. Mescue, his clingy girlfriend Phoebe and even a broken toilet. Will Steven ever finish his speech? Or does fate have something else in mind for him? Written by The Keymaster

This is a great , feel-good roller-coaster ride of comedic genius!!!
24 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

THIS IS WHAT COMEDY IS SUPPOSED TO BE! NO EXPLICIT, CRUDE COMMENTS. NO RACIAL SLURS. PURE UNADULTERATED HUMOR!!! I've loved this HBO special for almost 1/2 of my life! You could say I was "raised" on this program. The quick wit and absolutely fabulous display of ADHD in Steven's character we can all relate to. We all do what he does in this show, yet he's gutsy enough to admit to it and poke fun at it. I've never been more entertained by a single person in my lifetime. If you're looking for a very clean, family friendly show, that you'll watch over and over again....THIS IS IT! It is WORTH searching the world over for a copy of the Steven Banks Show. Your sides will never feel the same once you're done with it, and you'll be left hungry for more. BRAVO to Steven!!! And if you're listening (or reading) this, then PLEASE, Mr. Banks, give us an encore!!!
