“Silverstein set the bar high by opening the show with this high-octane one-man-show... He quickly builds upon the gimmick of entertainment by transfusing an emotionally charged narrative with captivating confessionals and spot-on cultural commentary.” —Culture Spot LA

“I saw this show and it was fantastic! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Joshua Silverstein blew us away.” 
—John Hensley, Flypoet Showcase

“That show was one of the best shows I've seen in my life.” —Kristina Wong, Actress/Comedian

“For anyone who has ever struggled with money, art, self-esteem, jealousy, race, anger, or basically just existing, I promise you it is not to be missed.” 
—Lauren Flans, Lost Moon Radio
