The Book of Moron - San Rafael

2/24, 8pm, & 2/25, 4pm & 8pm.
A fast-paced, hilarious production that combines satire & theater into what is being described by critics as: “Razor-sharp!” “Laugh Out Loud!” “Provocative!” “Thought Provoking!” “Brilliant!” and “A Thinking Man’s One Man Show!” Garry Shandling called it, “The funniest show you’ll ever think at!” & Dana Carvey from SNL declares, “If funny were a religion, Bob is nothing short of a miracle!”

So if you are tired of adolescent comedies generated by the mediocrity of television & are yearning for some satire that cuts with a clever intelligent edge; then buckle up for a hilarious joy ride over the pot-holed highways of cultural hypocrisy with Robert Dubac’s satirical bulls-eye, THE BOOK OF MORON!
It’s comedy on steroids. Think your funny bone can handle it?
