Between the heights of global fame and the deep trenches of total obscurity, there is a land of half-familiar faces, authentic talents and outrageous stories. Now Don Reed, the celebrated actor, playwright and warm-up comic for The Tonight Show, reveals all about this mysterious country in his all-new solo show, Semi-Famous: Hollywood Hell Tales from the Middle. From having a panic attack auditioning for Spike Lee to almost being shot by the Secret Service, Reed's stories are as outrageous as they are true. Get a glimpse of Hollywood -- that heartless, heartbreaking and (very occasionally) heartwarming city -- during this tour de force from Reed, a two-time NAACP Theatre Award nominee (Best Actor and Best Playwright).
