in the lounge Hello, Daddy! Sam Morrison
About This Show
Built off a decade of journal entries, Sam uses stand-up comedy, storytelling, and character and prop work to chronicle transformations of shame, love, and sex throughout his life. Falling in love with his Hebrew school teacher. Dating the prettiest woman in school. Trying to get into conversion camp. Sam’s unique brand of gritty humor and touching narrative will take you on hilarious explorations of sexual embarrassments and climaxes.
Presented as a ‘work-in-progress’, we hope you come ready to laugh, support, and pitch in your thoughts during a post-performance discussion.
