John Gordillo presents his comedy stand-up with a vindictive flair as he discusses modern capitalism and its unstoppable growth.
Gordillo really utilises his intelligent, satirical and ironic comedy to drive at how ridiculous capitalism has become. Ironically as his posters are plastered with star reviews, he bemoans about the incessant and constant need for star feedback in our culture.
His points ring true and at one point diverges into a segment on desires that is very candid – almost to the point where it forgets to be funny.
A very intriguing show that has much to say while still being very amusing. Gordillo even manages to stir up conversation in his audience too before ending on a fantastically high point.
