My overall impression

I always enjoy Steve Benaquist’s work because there’s so much smart behind the silly, and The Last One-man Show (Literally) is another great piece of work that is remarkably fun because of it as he weaves through characters both in his mind and in the materials left for him in a nuclear bunker, which goes from a volunteer-tester weekend to a minimum 17 years as half-lives are estimated upon the onset an incalculably inconvenient worldwide nuclear war. Every single character is smoothly delivered (he makes great use of his dynamic voice) and laugh-out-loud funny, and the show adds a very sweet touch as Benaquist interacts with a toy mouse as his only companion. I highly recommend this show, not just as a lively hour of entertainment, but also as a reminder that there’s still inventive and clever comedy character work happening beyond the one-note bore that so much media would have us believe is all that remains. Special note of appreciation for the tasty live guitar accompaniment.
