Ever had to walk into that room where your boss, with fake concern in his eyes, tells you that he's having to 'let you go'? Ever wish you had the balls to reply by saying 'F*** Y**'?

Well, that's exactly what I did. And it was brilliant.

This fifty minute long, spoken word performance tells that tale. It's a funny, angry, moving and thought-provoking true story that anyone can enjoy.

Unless they work in HR.

It played to a packed-out venue last year. And audiences loved it.

'Very real, very funny. A realistic insight into work life and the hypocrisies of faceless corporations. Loved it!'

'Brilliant monologue – bringing to life an everyday occurrence that impacts on people's lives in a humorous yet thought provoking manner.'

'The antidote to corporate b*******. Intelligent, human, well-written – in fact all the things that corporate b******* are not.'

'He speaks with such ease and eloquence. I was engaged right from the start. It is a story worth hearing.'

'Fantastic! Great writer, love the sentiments. enjoyable, enlightening, thoughtful and witty. Speaks for a lot of people and so eloquently for himself.'

'A humourous and candid account that pulls you right there into the office with him. You are willing David to slay Goliath all the way. Inspiring. Go and see it!'

So if you've ever wanted to tell your boss where they can stick their job, you really should see this show.
