"You’ll discover yourself struggling to find ways to accurately describe the emotional depth and intellectual breadth of what you have just witnessed."
— Huffington Post
"Impressive, hilarious, moving and provocative. Beneath the masterful humor, a rich texture of human connections asserts itself"
— San Francisco Chronicle
“Dan Hoyle’s smart, entertaining, funny, insightful, and surprising show...is compassionate and ultimately hopeful, without being soft at all.”
