Is Jamie (4-time Moth champ and “natural raconteur” -Washington Post) the full-blown version of Daddy Poo—not the Catholic, conservative part, but the gay, alcoholic part? “Jamie lights up the stage…a riveting, thoroughly polished performance…comedic perfection.” (Theater Is Easy “Best Bet” of New York International Fringe Festival)
Darkly comic, “I Favor My Daddy” is the follow up to "Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex, and My Mother." That show was about Jamie’s drinking and sexuality, and his mother Mama Jean. This show is about Jamie’s father, Daddy Poo, and HIS drinking and HIS sexuality. Jamie struggles to discover who his father really was. In the last years they have together, Jamie reveals his secrets to Daddy Poo. Will Daddy Poo finally reveal his own? We'd sooner see a Jewish pope ordained. Shows from gay men about their relationships with their dads are rare, especially ones packed with the originality, mordant humor and poignant heart of “I Favor My Daddy”.
