Last of the Knotts - - Off-Broadway

Selected "BEST OF THE FEST" of the 2011 Hollywood Fringe Festival, LAST OF THE KNOTTS is a 1-man comi-tragedy and the story of poet-hipster, Doug Knott's irreverent and thorny battle with becoming a father... or Knott! After putting up with a lifetime's worth of pain from ...his own abusive Judge of a Dad, Doug promises himself and his old man to be "the last of the Knotts" until... he falls in love with a beautiful woman with a pet boa constrictor... and "one of his sperm clings to a lifeboat inside her." The show too, is pregnant with laughs, squirms, and the comic and painful truth of life!

Warmth, pathos and lots of jokes join a husband and wife and their two grown daughters and sons-in-law aboard a cruise ship. It's a modern family vacation and the result is "a funny and touching look at six people enmeshed in various stages of complex relationships." An identifiable and buoyant dead serious comedy about love and survival that asks the question, are men really more trouble than they're worth?
