Tell Me I’m Pretty
TELL ME I’M PRETTY:
Written and Performed by Joshua Silverstein
Directed by Diana Wyenn
With side-splitting humor and raw power, comedic actor and beatboxer Joshua Silverstein delivers an explosive mix of storytelling, spoken word, vocal percussion, and hip hop. Backed by a live three-piece band, Silverstein layers playful and riveting narratives grounded in personal experience, and nuanced by the complexities and contradictions surrounding race, gender and, poverty in America. Plus, he reveals what it would have been like if Buster Keaton could beatbox!
Culture Spot LA said about an excerpt we performed at REDCAT’s Studio Series back in November… “Silverstein set the bar high by opening the show with this high-octane one-man-show… He quickly builds upon the gimmick of entertainment by transfusing an emotionally charged narrative with captivating confessionals and spot-on cultural commentary.”

Gerry Doot (drums)
Damian Curry (guitar)
Erik Hallsey (bass)
Joey Guthman (lighting designer)
