For Dezi Gallegos' latest piece of documentary theater, the 18-year-old performance prodigy interviewed people from nine different religions to help him decide once and for all whether or not God exists. What he found -- and shares on stage -- is wit and wisdom from a witch who worships Elvis, the director of an official organization of American atheists, a rabbi who somehow holds down a side job as a drag queen and many more, as well as an understanding of the shared human quest to discover why we're here. Gallegos has continued to develop his craft since his success as the co-writer of the award-winning Prop 8 Love Stories, when he was just 14. Learn More

Brian Copeland’s* incisive, cutting-edge stand-up comedy material won him San Francisco’s prestigious Cabaret Gold Award as well as top prize in the Monterey Laugh Off. His ability to cut to the heart of some of our most serious social and political problems has earned him spots as the opening act for such diverse artists as Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, Dionne Warwick, Donna Summer, Al Jarreau, Ringo Starr, Manhattan Transfer, Steve Allen, Dana Carvey, Rick Springfield, Lionel Richie, Lou Rawls, George Benson, Patti LaBelle, Etta James, Gregory Hines, The Righteous Brothers, The Temptations, and Aretha Franklin. He has appeared at such venues as Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, The Taj Mahal and Trump Palace in Atlantic City, the Nugget in Reno as well as clubs, colleges, and concert halls across America.
Copeland’s quick wit and probing interview style earned him a five-year position as co-host of San Francisco Fox affiliate KTVU’s top rated breakfast program Mornings on 2, where he did everything from man-on-the-street comedy bits to chatting up stars such as Dustin Hoffman and Garth Brooks. This led to a weekly national segment on NBC’s long-running late night show Friday Night called The World According to Copeland. In 1995, San Francisco ABC radio affiliate KGO premiered The Brian Copeland Show, which remains the most listened-to program in its time slot. In addition, he is currently the host of the talk show 7Live every weekday afternoon on ABC Channel 7. Also a serious writer, Copeland’s articles have appeared in national newspapers and magazines.
Not a Genuine Black Man recently ended a seven-year run at The Marsh Berkeley. The memoir based on the show was chosen as the 2009 selection for Silicon Valley Reads, a library-sponsored program which encourages all Silicon Valley residents to read one book at the same time and engage in communitywide discussions on its relevance. It is widely used in school and college courses.
