I FAVOR MY DADDY

Genre: Solo Performance
Written, Directed & Performed by Jamie Brickhouse

Called "a natural raconteur" by the Washington Post, Jamie Brickhouse returns to the NYC stage with the world premiere of I Favor My Daddy at Fringe NYC 2018. It is Jamie's (voices on Beavis and Butthead; 3-time Moth Slam champ, New York Times published author) follow-up to his critically-acclaimed and award-winning solo show, Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex, and My Mother. That show was about Jamie’s drinking and sexuality, and his Texas tornado of a mother Mama Jean. I Favor My Daddy is about Jamie’s father Earl aka Daddy Poo and his drinking and sexuality. “With this show, I’ve flipped the artistic process,” says Brickhouse. “I wrote and published Dangerous When Wet the memoir first. This time, I Favor My Daddy the show, will come out before the book.”

Daddy Poo is an octogenarian, ribald Catholic conservative accepting of his son’s homosexuality and arrested alcoholism, but is he in denial about his own? After he dies suddenly Jamie begins to realize that the constant postmortem refrain of the folks in town—“You favor your daddy,”—is true from his skin down to his marrow. Is Jamie all the things Daddy Poo was, but didn’t quite become: gay, alcoholic, writer? Is Jamie the full-blown version of Daddy Poo?

Critical Acclaim for Dangerous When Wet

“The show is as stylish as his slick sport coats. . . Brickhouse is a natural raconteur whose sharp writing defines the piece. . . the entertaining Dangerous When Wet must be one of the most polished one-man shows at Fringe this year.” —Washington Post

“So polished it almost feels too big for the Fringe...Brickhouse [has] a vocal range finely calibrated to the unique needs of each beat...he writes with fiendish pith.” —San Francisco Chronicle
