A great writer and a charming performer, who really puts us in a vice grip about one of life's ultimate dilemmas. In fact,I'm still thinking about it the next day. Go see and it think about what you would do.

A carefree LA hipster is faced with life’s ultimate choice — fatherhood: to have or have Knott.

Doug Knott, a carefree LA hipster, and son of redneck Tallahassee patriarch, Judge Knott, finds himself on the horns of a dilemma. To be or not to be: a father. Having taken enough lifelong shit from the abusive Judge, Doug aims his metaphorical gun at his father and says, “No way. I am the last of the Knotts.” Then he thinks twice! This is Knott a comedy.
