Mooney on the RiverTomatoes tried to kill me but banjos saved my life (The Quivering Dendrites Company) 2018 Toronto Fringe Review

“Alessi’s a soft-spoken sort with a friendly gaze, and his schtick is fundamentally wholesome and encouraging: the sort of person who should be marketing himself to millennials as the #BanjoDad. (#Relatable #Wholesome #ZellersJeans)”

My Entertainment World: Toronto Fringe ’18: Part XXIII

“Keith Alessi’s well-structured one-man show about following your passion is honestly delivered with a certain folksy charm I didn’t expect to find in a former top executive.”
