Mortensen Hall - Bushnell Theatre

September 21, 2017

Playwright Priest Tyaire returns with another touring comedy that examines the hilarious consequences of not cutting the apron strings well into adulthood. With an esteemed all African-American cast comprising Robin Givens, Columbus Short, Nephew Tommy (from the Steve Harvey Show), Jackee Harry, Shirley Murdock, and Silk member "Lil G". When a mother is forced to choose between her pampered adult son and her new man, the unsuspecting titular Momma's Boy is forced to grow up extremely quickly, land on his own two feet and even negotiate adult relationships - with uproarious results!

Love him or hate him, the hugely controversial Leno followed in the footsteps of legendary NBC late-night hosts Steve Allen, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson as the host of the Emmy Award-winning and top-rated "The Tonight Show," until his last show in 2014. You would think that he would be eager for some downtime - instead, he continues to hone his sharp, good humored roasting and standup skills at engagements across the country, often exceeding 300 dates per year!

Much of his humor is is drawn from his unconventional North Carolina upbringing, his varied stream of odd-jobs (Christmas elf at Macy's, anyone?) and plays to his self-deprecating strengths, and now often concerns his life today in France with his partner. He'll also give readings from his newest novel, Theft By Finding Diaries as part of his live engagements.
