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

One of the funniest and most entertaining things I've ever seen.
19 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is an incredibly funny and entertaining show. I watch it over and over. There are many subtle references to classic rock music, events in the '60's and 70's, and the pop culture of those times. I would guess most people would like to watch this show several times, to try to catch 'most' of the clever details that are woven throughout. And it's actually a deep study of a person 'finding himself', and almost being drawn into a world he'd never be happy in. The brick wall right outside his kitchen window is a telling reminder of what could be in store for him. Why don't they release this as a video more readily available???!!! If you get the chance, watch this. Watch it carefully, and you will laugh out loud over and over!
