R. Eric Thomas combines his distinctive blend of humor and heartbreak to craft a love story about race, sex, and the Internet. Weaving together intimate revelations with pithy observations, Thomas tells a universal tale about making connections and making mistakes.
So, let me get this straight: you want me to follow you on Twitter, but it’s not okay to follow you down the street, break into your house and take a bath in your tub? Social mores. So confusing.
In this hilarious solo show, Thomas leads audiences through the trials and travails of coming out, dropping out and stepping out on his own, all through the sometimes distorted view of a computer screen.
