SMOKER: Award-Winning Internationally Acclaimed Solo Show
Have you ever had to give up something you LOVE?
Smoker is multi-award-winning monologist Bob Brader's acclaimed solo comedy about his 28-year love affair with smoking and how they broke up. As Bob tries to leave his first love: “those sweet Camel lights” he realizes all the complex connections he has through smoking: how it helped him through a turbulent childhood, created jobs, opportunities and community, and one particular connection almost too precious to let go. At once hilarious and cautionary, Smoker expertly illuminates addiction with universal resonance.
