A great portrayal of modern day social life and lack there of. Witty and well written with clever directional choices. The leading man of this one man show is a competent performer but should work on calming his nerves in order for a more controlled performance. Overall a must watch of this years fringe.

Laughed so much at this cleverly written show. Samuel Turk is talented and engaging, though could do with slowing down some of his delivery. Probably the funniest one man show I've seen in a long time, and I left with a huge smile on my face. Would be great to see this show on next year at a later time of day, as would be a great way to start the evening! Definitely worth seeing!

Excellent world building and a great study of character - Sam’s “The Boy of One Thousand Faces” begins strangely relaxed. The audience is put at ease with the impression of this relatable protagonist, only to be steadily met with the reality - a dark portrait of a man slipping into delusion. I loved it. Hilarious and jarring - Sam could afford to continue the show and work on his performance, to the glee of any future audience.

A really witty show with a talented young man in it. Loved the characters and what the show is about. Super relevant topic in today's world. 100% would catch it to start your day.

A clever script. This modern day phenomenon of hiding behind a keyboard was highlighted to great effect in this one man show. It certainly gave us a lot to think about as we are constantly surrounded by people who cannot socialise as we did in the past. If you are one of those people then this show is a must!
