There is more than meets the eye to Tobincon, this delightful enigma of a show is exceptional, A complex profoundly personal show that sticks with you. Mitnick delivers a masterclass of a performance, I can't recommend this show enough.

It's been quite challenging to know precisely where to begin with any description of Tobincon. The failure to collect my written thoughts about this piece isn't due to anything that might be considered intrinsically wrong with the performance by Mitnick or his show. Quite the opposite in fact – it is caused by Tobincon being one of the most the intelligent, most fiercely acted, and most intimately engaging pieces I have seen thus far at the Hollywood Fringe Festival.
An incredibly witty, entertaining, and engaging commentary that is part Stand Up Comedy, part Ted Talk. Mitnick is no stranger to making folks laugh you can see why he was recently awarded Best Actor at the Los Angeles Comedy Festival.
I won't give anything away; I can't afford to ruin your it for you. This show needs to experienced firsthand. What I can say, is that watching this show evolve before me on stage, was one of the most enjoyable theatre experience in recent memory.
I applaud the terrific direction by Amanda Stoffel Mitnick who leads Mitnick through the peaks and valleys of the show.
I implore you, add Tobincon to your list if you haven't already, come prepared to laugh, and come ready to be conned but maybe not in the way you expect to be.
Without a doubt, one of my favorite shows of Hollywood Fringe 2019
