Pat Burtscher's Overwhelmed

Review by Mika Tsoi

Burtscher's show was such a refreshing change of pace and state of mind. Instead of well-worn obvious topics, he deals with how to make funerals and coffins environmentally friendly, what DEA agents would do after the decriminalisation of drugs of dependence and an array of mish mash that no one else might think to address. His delivery is what it might be like to be angry, confused and chilled out all in the same instant and it extends for an hour, so do not expect a linear show. Be amazed at what he pulls together to make comedy, but make sure you see his show.
