I’m just an awkward little man doing some stand-up and talking some real talk. The show is funny and emotional and occasionally serious as I take on topics such as daddy issues, depression, prostate exams, white privilege, the secret Ezekiel bread ingredient, heavy drinking, having a queer kid, the 2nd Amendment, religion, and the anxiety of having to buy a bigger belt.

    Such. a great show! A brief look at a lot of life. The heavy and the comedic all at one time. Just like…life.

    We really enjoyed this show! Ken Buch combined comedy and serious issues in a charming way. My husband especially loved the Uber story!

    Ken showed authenticity, wit, and radical honesty in this entertaining, and thought provoking show. I have continued to think and smirk
    about his stories and be challenged by issues he brought up that are all too relevant….

    This was a really good show! Really funny, really touchingly human, really gustsy. Ken Buch used his three mikes to good effect in sharing a whole array of different jokes, personal stories, and perspectives on this wild and crazy life and world we’re in. Go see this show while you still can!

    An excellent performance. Good comedy with some raw emotion built in. Thought provoking and timely. Highly recommend.

    I truly enjoyed this show. I laughed and I cried. Ken Buch’s writing and his acting are so authentic. His use of humor made dealing with heavy topics easier and his vulnerability was profound. Take the time to see it at least once!

    Ken puts on a hilarious show using wit and vulnerability. He’s very relatable and shares hard topics in a light hearted way.
