I have seen Brian as a stand-up comedian for many years and I saw his "Not a Genuine Black Man" play, where he was fantastic in that and I have seen him in his latest: "The Waiting Period". Brian is a super talented writer, comic, performer,...continued

Great show and proof that waiting periods are absolutely necessary.

Beautifully written and painfully honest portrayal of a difficult subject. Moved quickly and was fascinated throughout. My only small criticism was that sometimes when Brian played certain characters his accent was hard to understand.

This is the first time I've seen Brian Copeland perform, and I agree with the other reviewers-- he is amazing!

I should have read the description of the show, however, as I was not prepared for the subject matter. (The show was recommended to...continued

Excellent impassioned one man show told with soul-bearing honesty as well as humor and compassion...a deeply personal story about weaving his way through depression to the other side. Brian Copeland is telling his story so passionately to deliver...continued

Great show! Very personal, yet funny and moving performance! Anyone who has ever been depressed (that is probably everyone) can probably relate to some of his very poignant experiences. See it when it comes back to the Marsh later this year!

Brian's show was heart wrenching and funny at the same time. It was a great show and for anyone that knows someone with depression it really hit home. It was great !!!!

One of the best portrayals of what someone going through depression experiences. Brian incorporates a number of diverse characters and both humor and drama to tell the story of one man's struggle through the darkest period of his life.

We saw his NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN, which was excellent, so we were expecting a lot. Very disappointed in his new play. Boring and not in the least funny.

Brian Copeland did a great job profiling depression and the thoughts of taking one's life. I've been in that boat twice.
He captures it with his personal story that details dealing with a dark and sensitive subject in a lighthearted...continued

Wow! I expected a good evening, but this was so much better even than my expectations. Really funny in parts, really touching in other parts. Brian is just masterful at telling his story. Obviously highly recommended.

Brian Copeland has done it again..provided social commentary about a serious subject in an amusing yet sensitive manner. The sold out house gave a standing ovation to this "beautiful mind"!
