“The show is as stylish as his slick sport coats. . . Brickhouse is a natural raconteur whose sharp writing defines the piece. . . one of the most polished one-man shows…this year," says the Washington Post of Brickhouse's award-winning, critically-acclaimed solo show Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex, and My Mother directed by Obie Award-winning David Drake (The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me). It's his alcoholic odyssey from small-town sissy to louche Manhattanite that’s wickedly intoxicating as he hits bottom and discovers he can’t escape the all-consuming love of his mother Mama Jean. A Texan Elizabeth Taylor with the split personality of Auntie Mame and Mama Rose, she never has a thought she doesn’t speak and unwittingly helps Jamie become an out, proud gay, HIV-positive man in recovery. Darkly comic, you’ll cry laughing. Brickhouse is a 3-Moth Slam champion and New York Times published author.
