THE MIDWEST MODERATE
"Comedy is Tragedy, plus Time."
- Carol Burnett
Though most of Hooper's time is spent hoping to work towards compromise and legitimate representation, the trials and tribulations of such can leave one jaded and cynical - if not for a good sense of humor.
In 2013, during a health crisis, Hooper bravely took the stage for "Dead Man Talking," a reflective one-man show on the insanity of being in your twenties in a modern society. Now, in a far more personal and smaller setting, Hooper is bringing us "Last Laugh," a self-reflective piece on love, loss, depression, and survival. Relaying tales too ridiculous or sad to be made-up, the politician-turned-comedian uses examples from his own ups and downs to lighten the mood of others.
Hooper will be bringing his tour to small venues across the Midwest beginning February 17th until finally culminating in a taped special in Philadelphia on July 8th. Check the facebook page for more constant updates and tickets to individual shows.
