Time Out says

You may know David Carl from his portrayal of Gary Busey in his standout one-man comedy show, David Carl’s Celebrity One-Man Hamlet. Now Carl plays an actor named Carl David (try to keep up), who evokes the wrath of Donald Trump by portraying the President in a solo version of King Lear, Shakespeare's portrait of a senescent ruler whose vanity tears his country apart. He's taken the show on a world tour and brought it back to NYC, all while the president continues to feed him material. Count on new levels of thrilling madness from this virtuoso.

During the coronavirus quarantine period, Carl will perform the show live from his Brooklyn home on the following dates. Tickets cost $12 and can be purchased online here.
