John Gordillo: Cheap Shots at the Defenceless

Review by Elaine Reid | 08 Aug 2013
  • John Gorilldo

Hey there! 

Ever noticed how more and more companies are talking to you like family or close friends (thanks for stopping by, you rock!) and are demanding, through emotional blackmail, positive feedback on everyday services? John Gordillo has, and in one delightfully funny hour he's going to give you his eloquent take on this never-ending over-familiar corporate assault. He will also explain why simply putting a book into a sack should not result in a 5 star rating.

Offering stories from companies who've crossed his path and the accepted bounds of familiarity, John gives a passionate, vibrant performance which has him bouncing around the stage with enchanting vigor. A collection of humorous clips back his performance as does a deep love and appreciation of Dionne Warwick and an endearing batch of stories regarding his relationship with his adopted daughter and his up-close-and-personal Spanish father.

A show to relish, to chuckle at and to make you think about your conception of relationships, love and the corporate world hiding behind a smiling neon chicken. Remember to come back and read more of our reviews soon, we hate goodbyes! [John Gordillo]
