The King Of Staten Island

How to pull the punch line even when the joke didn’t reach that stage, in The King Of Staten Island.

Life’s Too Short

How to jump into the wrong set of shoes and force it to adjust to your size, in Life's Too Short.

The Lovebirds

How to try and then try harder and then push and then push again, until it breaks, screams and annoys, in The Lovebirds. So this is going to sound a little weird. Get this.
