A few years ago, someone did a little show that was basically a Tony Robbins motivational rah rah, and I felt a bit disappointed. This year, the inventive Mr Baratelli repairs that offence with his much more entertaining “How Do You Feel? Life Coaching Seminar.” Normally I hate motivational speakers, but I’ll make an exception here – Mr. Baratelli slices and dices the genera, ridiculing everything but stopping short of actually cleaning out or wallets. We learn that suicide IS an option, laugh hysterically at an 80 year old woman’s pratfall, and then sit awkwardly when Lady Raptastic arrives and lets the air out of the room. Alternately hysterical and uncomfortable, Mark Baratelli’s show is at least as entertaining as the art form he ridicules.
