Photos: Inside Opening Night of NEAL BRENNAN: UNACCEPTABLE at Cherry Lane Theatre 

The show is directed by Derek DelGaudio.

What do you do with the pieces of yourself people don't like? In this new theatrical stand-up show, Neal Brennan: Unacceptable, the comedian meticulously examines his own defects, attempting to understand his baffling inability to fit into a group and the alienation that comes along with it.

Derek DelGaudio directs this follow up to Brennan's acclaimed 2016 show, 3 Mics.

The show, produced by Vanessa Lauren and Jake Friedman, with scenic design by Anna Louizos, lighting design by Adam Blumenthal, and sound design by Kevin Heard, is playing at the Cherry Lane Theatre. Check out photos from inside opening night below!
