"Pete Malicki is the master of the monologue. In the inventive, surprising, engaging, highly human, intensely theatrical, extremely well written, and diabolically cunning short solo pieces in Monosauce, he finds deeply creative ways to explore the darkest corners of the human psyche with insight and heart. Nobody does it better.

I enjoyed A Psychopath and its clever dialogue.
