Edmonton Journal 4 1/2 STARS
"simply, perfectly moving"
"While life stories like this are potentially gripping, no one did it better this year than New York City's Peter Aguero in Daddy Issues at Walterdale Theatre."
Vue Weekly 4 STARS
"Aguero conquers the topic with neither hostility nor resentment, opting instead for humor and compassion. Alone at the mic, he paints a fascinating picture of rejection and personal growth."
