It’s 1959, and Chick Sherman’s funnyman career is beginning its decline into irrelevancy. That all changes when an experimental playwright specifically requests his talents, teaching Chick that not everything in life has to have a punchline.
The production is directed by Tipping Point’s producing artistic director, James R. Kuhl. The cast includes Wayne David Parker, Brandy Joe Plambeck, Matthew Smith. Ryan Carlson, John Lepard, and Lani Williams.
