A masterwork by a master of the one-man show. Brilliantly written, directed and performed. I was deeply touched. A completely realized theatrical experience.

As usual, Brian was fabulous! Even our 8 year old grandson was taken by his performance.

If you've already seen Copeland's long-running "Not a Genuine Black Man," you'll love this "prequel," which manages to be heartwarming without being syrupy or mawkish, as is too often the case with holiday fare. Copeland is a master storyteller...continued

This is the second Brian Copeland show I've seen, and I enjoyed this one. I laughed, I cried. He tells a really poignant tale of growing up poor in East Oakland, and his love for his family shows throughout. Highly recommend this show, and any...continued

It was a lovely, heartrending experience. My only problem was that the sound was spotty.
