Nantel’s latest one-man show promises to be a humorous reflection on his political journey, giving the audience an inside look at his experiences. But as he attempts to demonstrate his political savvy, he inadvertently convinces his audience otherwise. At a time when social issues continue to divide and polarize, Nantel’s biting, ironic and realistic perspective on politics and society is a breath of fresh air. His ability to create hilarity through his commentary on social and political issues is a testament to his wit and comedic prowess. Whether on stage or through his famous vox pop, Nantel fearlessly speaks his mind and navigates the issues that affect our daily lives.
