The food at Tuba, a Turkish restaurant just around the corner on Guerrero, is outstanding!

Don Reed is a superstar--he tells a wonderful story with incredible style and humor! The evening flew by without a single dull moment.

This is one of the most enjoyable solo shows I've ever seen. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Description

Don Reed is the writer/director/playwright of one of the longest running solo shows in the Bay Area – his highly successful East 14th – which chronicles his hilarious and moving escape from a deeply religious upbringing to join his real father… whom he didn’t know was a pimp in the ‘70s. His new show, The Kipling Hotel, picks up where his ‘70s tome left off. 

Don has performed, written and directed for film, television and theatre. His work on an HBO special of up-and-coming comedians years ago caught the attention of the right people and led to many recurring and guest starring roles on television. Don has performed all over the country and opened for Tony Award winner Tommy Tune. You may have heard his voice on: Spiderman, The Flintstones, ER, Frasier, Friends, Scrubs, Will & Grace, Law & Order and SNL. He has written promos for The Golden Globes, The Academy Awards and the Olympics. Additionally, he has written and developed screenplays for Spike Lee’s 40 Acres and a Mule and Maverick Filmworks. Don is also the opening act/warm up comedian for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and just closed a deal for a new FOX television comedy.
