“It reads like a Saturday Night Live skit or a Comedy Central animated show.”

“Author Rev. Shakes Spear has crafted a collection of tales that reminded me of some of the comedy greats in the highs of 90’s film and television: a little Beavis and Butthead here, a little Steve Martin there. This makes for a winning combination as the sharp meets the silly in the author’s narration.”

“This generation’s new Beavis and Butthead or Mad Magazine.”

“The funny lines bounce effortlessly between the characters and off the page.”

With a chip on his shoulder and a scowl on his face, Ed Streitz has had enough. He’s tired of his stupid job, sick of people telling him what to do, frustrated with his uptight girlfriend, and irritated with the world in general. He should have been a world-famous musician but instead he manages a small apartment building with his older brother Ken.

Ken is an easy-going tough guy who works hard, likes beer and his truck.

Follow the goofy adventures of Ed and Ken, and their oddball friends and neighbors as they navigate their way through the maze of lower middle-class life in the late ‘80’s.
