"Hilarious show by a current stand-up comedian and former member of the U.S. Navy that goes much deeper than you’d expect… Walsh plays all of these characters from his life with such skill that they really pop off the stage… I highly recommend this show. It’ll make you laugh, think, and leave with a glimpse to a side of stand-up you might not expect to see."
