Dylan Brody's Driving Hollywood New Review (Theater and Comedy)

When: Wednesdays-Saturdays. Continues through May 20 2017
Price: $25-$35
Given the effete stylings of Dylan Brody’s one-man show—leather-bound books and manual typewriter atop wooden writing desk, 1940s-style microphone, tweed suit with watch chain—and his easygoing efforts to depict his life story as series of a wry, insupportable encounters with moral cowards and intellectual inferiors, it’s no surprise the writer-performer bills himself as a humorist rather than, say, a comic. And at his best, as when he succinctly dissects the hypocrisy of American democracy by reliving his second-grade class election, he earns a bit of Will Rogers cred. But it’s never clear why his lifelong struggle to have his mildly subversive ideas taken seriously should matter to the rest of us, especially since he delivers nearly every anecdote in this 90-minute evening with more bemusement than urgency. —Justin Hayford
