Former frustrated poet and adman, James Keating attempts to understand his twisted career path in light of a line from a Hemingway novel: “When I was your age I was before the mast on a square rigged ship that ran to Africa and I have seen lions on the beaches in the evening.”
Using his trademark hilarious one-liners, James floats on a sea of witty wordplay and clever puns to reach a conclusion.
For anyone puzzled by their own pathway, aside from an hour of quality laughs, this show will probably be of no help at all.
"Endearing awkwardness wrapped around elegant, clever material. Genuinely smart, witty gags"
