Bruce McCulloch: Tales of Bravery and Stupidity is a one-man show that moves brilliantly between funny, relatable and surprisingly touching. Using music, stand-up, and storytelling, Bruce McCulloch takes us on a poetic flyover of his life "pursuing stories" and makes an unspoken agreement with the audience to contemplate the world together. Tales combines Bruce's knack for effin' funny observations with his humanistic yearnings, looking at the bravely stupid things he's done, and things we all do as we try and make sense of our messy lives.

Bruce McCulloch is a Canadian actor, writer, and director with a career spanning television, theatre and film. Bruce will star in the new Kids in the Hall series premiering May 13 on Amazon Prime and in the documentary, Kids in the Hall: Comedy Punks, premiering May 20 on Amazon Prime.

Bruce has written or performed several one-man shows including Two-Headed Roommate, Jazz Stenographers, and Slightly Bigger. Tales is the first one-man show to run in New York.
