Love the expressive moustache
I think your acting is great. Your line quality and confidence could be improved. I went through draw a box a few months back. It helped my animation improve a lot. Then pick out keys spend a long time getting volumes right. It will make inbetweening way easier to maintain volumes. Check out draw a box and use a pen when going through it. Awesome animation bud

When this animation is clean, it will look much better. The speaker's character was based off a funny walrus. The guitarist makes me happy.
I respect the time and detail put into the gestures and movement but you've got to hold your poses for a moment to impact. This allows the viewer to keep up. The character in the background has a little too much groove and movement that is taking attention away from the speaker during the speaker's most important gesture and line delivery (frames 120-180). I love the foreshortening in the hand gestures (182), but I think having the whole gesture in the shot would have been better/more impactful.
