Will the real Zack please stand up

You’d think that ‘time travel’ stories – comedic or otherwise -- have pretty much all been done yet here we go again. The upshot in this case is that you can’t be in two places at the same time so you might as well be here, now. Zack Adams himself is a compelling performer and his work with a hand-held puppet in particular is marvelous. But this script (written by Mr. Adams' alter-ego Shane Adamczak) is unoriginal and fails as comedy. I was left just wondering what Mr. Adams could do with good material.
