I would have add some bend to his arms, here it feels to much like stick bones, try to add curves to your posing.

The lipsync is a bit timid, and off sometimes, don't hesitate to open the jaw a bit more.

One more advise try to add more breakdown, here all body parts move at the same time. Good potential so far, keep it up ! =)

Laurent Châtellier:

From frame 0 to 180, his right hand is locked in place, in a way that doesn't seam natural.
Overall, it feels very "robotic". Try to add more weight in the movements.
F221,and F246 : the right and the left hand reach their position at the same frame, that's no good you should offset them in time to make it more natural. Make them ease-in and ease-out.

J.K. Riki:

The reaction while the second character is speaking happens too quickly. There's no time for the first character to process what he says before the eye roll happens. You need to give characters time to think. Good luck with your future entries, keep at it!

Sabrina Winkel:

He moves too much
