Have you ever

had to give up something you LOVE?

 

Smoker is award-winning New York monologuist Bob Brader’s new 24-character solo comedy about his 28-year love affair with smoking, his fear of giving up cigarettes and losing himself, and the love that got him to try to quit. As Bob tries for years to break up with his first love: those sweet Camel Lights, he discovers that for him, quitting smoking is bigger than overcoming an addiction, it’s the challenge of breaking the cycle of his childhood abuse as an adult. Armed with humor, a light touch and an eye for absurdity, Bob takes us from a strange white room in Los Angeles to the rough-and-tumble back roads of his hometown of Catasauqua, PA, from below a starry night sky in Woodstock, NY to the psychedelic basement of a high school druggie.

In Smoker, Bob realizes all the complex

connections he has through smoking: how it

helped him through a turbulent childhood,

created jobs, opportunities and community, and

one particular connection too precious to let go.
