Play History

“I call it autobiographical, but take that with a grain of salt. I’ve traded out characters and situations, amalgamated people into one person. And of course the entire show is seen through the grossly one-sided lens of my point of view.”

“I first wrote the show in a place of real grief, after the death of my younger brother. People are surprised to hear that grief can inspire comedy, but those people don’t know comedy. When I first wrote it, I wasn’t ready to speak directly of my brother. I can face things more unflinchingly now. When I’m old, I hope to do an ‘old’ version of the show, which will feature my grandchildren or something.”
