Hi,
this still looks pretty linear to me..very pose to pose. Are you going for the snappy style? or..?
Anyways for starters. you can put in more in-between poses. Also, remember the body should react to every action, do not just animate the upper body. Create some arcs for the movements, especially the slapping and banging on the console.

Hope these helps.

Good start, but it need a lot of tweaks. Like mentioned above the movements are pretty linear, you should always have some sort of ease in and out with character animation. Looks like you did this in 3dsmax, so the tool you are looking for is the curve editor. Which can be found on the top bar and even on the bottom to the left of the timeline. Since this is the LowMax rig I know it will be a struggle to find the curve editor because for some reason it is hidden but I have faith in you!

It also needs exaggeration, followthrough action and secondary action. Meaning maybe some squash and stretch, eye blinks, chest movement, CoM movement. Keep it up!
