Neal Brennan is following up his successful 2016 Off-Broadway run of 3 Mics, which begat a 2017 Netflix special, with a new one-man show. This is Unacceptable.

Brennan’s Tweet today described it simply so far as “Stand-up w/ personal, emotional stuff.”

Need more info? A show description reads: “What do you do with the parts of yourself people don’t like? In a new theatrical stand-up show, Neal Brennan explores his own inability to fit into a tribe and the alienation that comes along with it.”

Unacceptable is produced by Vanessa Lauren and Jake Friedman, with scenic design by Anna Louizos, lighting design by Adam Blumenthal.

Tickets are on sale today. Prices: $40-$95.
