A wonderful performance by Chris Forrest as he speaks about the stages of pregnancy. This stand up comedy is witty, funny and helpful for those who are expecting. Who’s your Daddy is great because Forrest involves the audience immediately and audience members are made to feel partly responsible for this masterpiece. – Cue Magazine July 2014
