The Day I Became Black

  • SoHo Playhouse 15 Vandam St. New York, NY 10013 United States (map)

Bi-racial comedian Bill Posley grew up happily identifying as both black and white. But at age 10, he learned the world does, in fact, judge a book by its color and, even though he's half white, he's labeled 100% black. Does a young comedian have to get rid of his whiteness in order to be the color he's "supposed" to be? Hear Posley weigh in on the modern-day conversation about race from a unique perspective.

Comedic genius and brilliant perspective. A MUST-SEE!

“You’re going to have fun at this show. It’s going to feel powerfully great to be there. You’re going laugh ur ass off. You’re going to love this guy. And then you’re going to get kicked in the heart. And you"re going to cry. And you’re going to be grateful. Because this guy is effin brilliant. This is the kind of comedy that needs to be celebrated. And taken into the heart. It’s a show that will wake you up forever.”
