Robert Dubac’s BOOK OF MORON is a fast-paced, hilarious production that combines satire and theater. It has been described as one of the most “Hilarious” “Intelligent” and “Scorching” satirical attacks on idiocracy since Mark Twain. (And “idiocracy” isn’t even a word. How dumb is that?)
Dubac portrays Robert, an everyman who has lost sight of the bigger picture. He’s been bombarded by so much hype and spin he can’t remember who he is or what he believes. Does he have a purpose? Can he think for himself? Is the truth in the details or in the pudding? He hasn’t a clue. He racks his brain searching for answers but finds nothing but voices. It’s all for one and one for all as Robert’s inner voices take him on a freight train of provocative thought to find the bigger picture and wake up from the coma of modern day life.
First his voice of reason convinces him to think outside the box but not without a fight from his inner moron. Then his common teaches him critical thought so he can think for himself instead of relying on the media. Next his inner child shows him how to use just enough innocence to question authority without getting spanked. Then his inner asshole urges him to use both four syllable and four-letter words to battle censorship. Along the way he finds his scruples who encourage him to open The Door of Truth. But when it hits him in the head, he realizes the ultimate paradox – the truth hurts and is funny at the same time.
Robert Dubac belongs to a unique breed of humorists, bringing to mind the best of Lily Tomlin and Mark Twain. He creates characters that boggle our minds with biting wit and rapid-fire satire while simultaneously crafting a simple story that binds us all together. His ability to combine the raucous laughter of stand-up comedy with the startling thrill of live theater continues to fill seats everywhere; as nothing like this can be seen on TV, that’s for sure.
If you are yearning for some satire that cuts with a clever intelligent edge; if you are tired of adolescent comedies generated by the mediocrity of television; then buckle up for a hilarious joy ride over the pot-holed highways of cultural hypocrisy with Robert Dubac’s BOOK OF MORON!
