Storyline

In this brilliant one-man show, the mild-mannered, thirty-something Steven Banks arrives home after a long day at his dead-end corporate job, still dreaming of being a rock star. Steven receives a message on his machine from his boss, Mr. Buttle, informing him that he never received an urgent speech Steven wrote for the board of directors. Steven must scramble to write a new one, but he has less than an hour to do it. Along the way, he continually procrastinates and distracts himself from the task at hand, playing with toys and various musical instruments, baking cookies, putting on costumes, leafing through an old high school yearbook and performing some hilarious original songs along the way. Meanwhile, he's got to deal with his grumpy landlord Mr. Mescue, his clingy girlfriend Phoebe and even a broken toilet. Will Steven ever finish his speech? Or does fate have something else in mind for him? Written by The Keymaster

Best original comedy
15 December 2006 | by figgins1See all my reviews

You can see this show on youtube.com. Its cut into 7 parts, but at least it is accessible, finally. I just about wore out my VHS tape on this show. I've lent it out so many times, that I lost track of it over time.

Since I have found it on youtube.com, I think I find myself watching it at least once a month. It is the best original one man show ever put together! I remember watching the Steven Banks Entertainnment Center at a friends house and laughing all throughout the show. The story line is well thought out,and well acted. Steven makes you believe that your not only watching him on stage, but that there are many other characters he interacts with as well.

If someone was to have this on DVD, I would like a copy since I don't believe it was ever released on VHS or disc.
