‘The Co-Worker’ Makes You Meaner, Sorry
I can’t help but root for the mean guy here. Byron Brown’s portrayal of a shitbag co-worker is somehow irresistible. Equally fun is the meandering nature of this piece. There’s no real game except “this guy’s nuts,” but it works. Somehow, Brown’s evil charisma grows The Co-Worker from crazy town roots into a comedy tree with poisonous little flowers I want to keep smelling.
