Does this sound familiar?

My wife and I are going out on a date! It's been forever, but we are going. I'm in the car, revving the engine, the wife is inside the house...

It's a new sitter, I get that, but you explain bedtime, exchange phone numbers, hide the good liquor, tell her where the fire extinguishers are, and BOOM, you can be out of there. But I'm cool. This is still going be a great evening. My lady and me on a date. To the Thea-tra! I'm driving, I know some short cuts, we'll be fine. We finally hit the road, zoom, zip, we make GREAT time, thank you, and there's an open parking spot right on the street! A block from the theatre! And free! We must have saved a puppy from a burning automobile in a previous life or something, cause the Car Karma is like WHOOOO!

As I glide into the rock star parking spot, my wife turns to me and says, "Oh, can we park in the garage? The wind's gonna destroy my hair!"

Starring in this wonderful comedy show is MATT ISEMAN. Matt's talent ranges from network television to Daytime Emmy Award winner to live performances across the globe. Commenting on the show, Matt said, "I love this character! He gets to share with the audience all of their foibles in their relationship and give them something to take away from the show."

Although Matt always loved being the center of attention, he started down a very different road. After graduating with honors from Princeton University and the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, where he received his MD, he returned home to the University of Colorado for his residency in Internal Medicine. Then, in a move that shocked patients and parents alike, he quit his job as a doctor and moved out to Hollywood to pursue stand up comedy and he never looked back.

Matt quickly began headlining clubs across the nation and was selected as one of 10 comedians to perform at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. His world experience did not stop there as he ventured overseas to entertain the troops on the first anniversary of 9/11 including shows in Afghanistan and Iraq.

He currently hosted the smash hit American Ninja Warrior on the NBC Television Network and is the voice of Dumbest Stuff on Wheels, the #1 show on the Speed Channel.

The talented team assembled for this production continues with the award winning play write Eric Coble, direction by Broadway veteran Mindy Cooper, Dramaturge Monique Marvez, and animation & video production by the talented animators at Bazillion Productions.
