Entertaining and honest docu
30 November 2018 | by CryptozymonSee all my reviews

I did not expect this. This was a very entertaining and honest docu about a guy, Dave, trying everything on his way to get famous. On his way he befriends with Bob the beast, Ladybeard and Kylie, an Idol. This depiction of the pursuit of fame from different characters is very interesting. All are struggling in life and it takes a lot of sacrifice to achieve their dreams.
