Shot Bro (Confessions of a Depressed Bullet)
By Rob Mokaraka
Mokaraka uses music and comedy to get across deep issues, to entertain and enlighten audiences and shift them outside of what they perceive the topic to be. Shot Bro, weaves through the subject of depression using multiple characters in a surreal, yet quite honest format in an absurdist and commedia dell’arte modus operandi.
