about the show

Using his extensive experience working behind the scenes in the world of comedy, Neal takes the stage alternating between three separate microphones, each giving voice to the various aspects of his life. The first microphone is marked by Neal’s smart and sardonic take on race, gender and contemporary heroes and hypocrites. At the second mic, Neal shows his punchy wit, sharing one-liners he’s crafted over the years but couldn’t find a home for. With the third and final microphone, Neal shares stories of his personal struggles, dealing with everything from depression to relationships.  With bracing honesty, he reveals challenges that have shaped who he is today, life as a soloist with shoddy confidence and building a life in the shadow of parental abuse and alcoholism.

“Funny! Full of valuable, heartfelt insights… Brennan has a Steven Wright-ish flair for finding the absurd in the everyday.”

- The New York Times

“A hilarious and moving solo show that's greater than the sum of its parts.”

“A truly unique comedy experience.”
