Brian Copeland (NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN, WAITING PERIOD) and Charlie Varon (RUSH LIMBAUGH IN NIGHT SCHOOL, RABBI SAM) join forces to present new monologues on life in the Age of Trump for one performance only in THE GREAT AMERICAN SHIT SHOW.
Join us for an evening of laughing… but more importantly, for an evening of THINKING as we explore how to deal with a family member who’s all in for the Donald when you’re not, trying to turn red congressional seats blue in the Central Valley, #MeToo and more.
Brian Copeland has been in show business since age 18. Soon he was headlining comedy clubs and concerts across the country and opening for Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, Ringo Starr, and Aretha Franklin, in venues across the U.S. Then Copeland branched off into TV, appearing in comedy programs on NBC, A&E and MTV. He spent five years as co-host of SF FOX affiliate KTVU program Mornings on 2 and two years hosting SF ABC affiliate KGO’s Emmy Award winning afternoon talker 7Live. (who later premiered THE BRIAN COPELAND SHOW). Copeland moved into theater in 2004 with his first solo play, NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN. This critically acclaimed exploration of race and identity created an audience-pleasing blend of laughter, tears and sociology that led to the show becoming the longest running solo play in SF theatrical history. Successful runs in LA and Off Broadway and a bestselling book adaptation followed.
Charlie Varon is an artist-in-residence at The Marsh Theater in San Francisco. He has collaborated with Dan Hoyle on his solo shows Circumnavigator, Tings Dey Happen and The Real Americans. As playwright/performer, Varon’s award-winning shows – all created in collaboration with David Ford –include Rush Limbaugh in Night School (1994), The People’s Violin (2000), and Rabbi Sam (2009) which have had long runs at The Marsh and toured the country. charlievaron.com
