[Review] John-Luke Roberts: All I Wanna Do Is [FX: GUNSHOTS] With a [FX: GUN RELOADING] and a [FX: CASH REGISTER] and Perform Some Comedy!

He’s animated this year, even by his standards, with a manic grin and an energy that never lets up. All I Wanna Do Is [FX: GUNSHOTS] With a [FX: GUN RELOADING] and a [FX: CASH REGISTER] and Perform Some Comedy! (a superbly preposterous title destined to break the carefully designed page layouts of review sites all over the web) is ostensibly a reaction to a single piece of criticism that Roberts received for his previous show. In fact, it’s a love-letter to surrealism that is densely packed with satire, social commentary, sketches – and, yes, many silly voices and idiotic props.
