Geoff Hoyle's hit autobiographical solo show Geezer is a hilariously wistful look at growing old that's filled with the performer's trademark comic physicality. Known from his role as Mr. Sniff, the beloved clown of the Pickle Family Circus, and from his commedia dell'arte masterpiece Feast of Fools, Hoyle shines in this tour de force exploration of aging, which includes reminiscences of his English youth and subsequent days in America, along with musings on mortality and the meaning of life, especially when part of it is spent in a nursing home.

I have seen this show twice now this fall (2010), and it is brilliant, and Ann Randolph is a comedic genius. Run, don't walk to get your tickets. It's one of the best theater experiences I've had in a while -- so memorable. Both times, members of the audience (including people in my party) were tearful at the end. I don't want to spoil the plot, but it really hits home on many levels. We needed to go out afterward to debrief, compare notes, etc. And how great that it's in Berkeley, close to many restaurants. If you have discerning theater goers on your holiday list, get them tickets. There was some discussion as to whether it's more of a woman's experience, but I think it has major appeal for both sexes, especially for evolved men. I want to get my husband tickets before the run is over.

Join Randolph as she takes us on the irreverent, hilarious and deeply human journey of Franny Potts. Facing up to the greatest loss of her life while flying from LA to Ohio surrounded by strangers, Franny stumbles her way from awkward confusion through the mystery, tragedy and beauty that unite all us.
A stunning performer, Mel Brooks compares Randolph to the late Gilda Radner for her audacious humor, her generosity and her ability to take us from tears to laughter in the same minute. Randolph’s previous solo show, “Squeeze Box,” was the Winner of LA Weekly’s “Best Solo Show” and the Los Angeles Times Ovation Award for “Best Solo Performer.”
