This collection of offbeat short stories dealing mainly with love and relationships is, to put it plainly, weirdly funny. Delivered by an ensemble that includes the author himself, the polished performances capture Bob-Waksberg's sardonic wit and exaggerated renderings of the absurdities of romance. From auspicious ritual goat sacrifice at a wedding to an extended series of missed connections, the author turns a satirical eye on love while at the same time unveiling deeper truths about our emotions and our culture at large. The actors' readings are spot-on in rendering Bob-Waksberg's tone, which deftly manifests the ludicrous while conveying relatable sentiments.
