An hysterically funny pseudo-autobiography.
Mr. Judd's timing and facial expressions are priceless.
The initimate atmosphere of the Exit Theater was essential.
Best theater I've seen this year.

Fantastically entertaining performer. I am urging all my friends to see him. I haven't laughed so much for ages. Can't wait for his next show.

The long-running hit comedy 7 Sins is a collection of true, fast and funny stories from the life of writer/comedian James Judd. It chronicles his early ambition to win his fifth-grade book report competition with “My Search for Patty Hearst,” and his first job when his working mother paid him to watch The Young and the Restless and then reenact it for her. He relives his varied careers as a forgotten employee of AT&T, where he did nothing for a year, an even shorter-lived career as a dot-com journalist (which led to an insane night with five Chinese billionaires in a Chinese bordello), and as an under-prepared criminal defense attorney representing violent teenage girls, as well as many more strange and always funny stories.

Now updated for 2011, 7 Sins… One More Time includes stories of his City Hall marriage to his husband Eric Alvarez, interactive animation and tales of touring the show to the most unlikely places. __
