“HYSTERICAL…Bottrell’s acerbic writing is reminiscent of David Sedaris’, but the delivery is what makes it work... Although his comedy is self-deprecating, it is equally other-deprecating, giving it a nice edge... Even when he’s insulting everybody in the room, Bottrell’s take on the human condition as “funny, hopeless and sweet” is deeply consoling.
