Robert Dubac's The Book of Moron
Robert Dubac’s newest Off-Broadway solo hit, THE BOOK OF MORON, has been described as one of the most “Hilarious” “Intelligent” and “Scorching” satirical attacks on idiocracy since Mark Twain. (And “idiocracy” isn’t even a word. How dumb is that?)
The New York Times raves, “Riding shotgun with intelligence and absurdity, there’s laughter for all!”
Are you craving satire that cuts with a clever intelligent edge? Are you tired of adolescent comedies generated by the mediocrity of television? Then buckle up for a hilarious joy ride over the pot-holed highways of cultural hypocrisy with Robert Dubac’s THE BOOK OF MORON!
It’s comedy on steroids. Think your funny bone can handle it?
Robert Dubac draws on decades of showbiz experience as a writer, actor and stand-up comic to create solo shows that explore social mores, political ideas and the complexity of the human experience with unparalleled humor that is both intelligent and absurd. He belongs to a unique breed of humorists, bringing to mind the best of Lily Tomlin and Mark Twain, creating characters that boggle our minds with biting wit and rapid-fire satire while simultaneously crafting a simple story that binds us all together. His ability to combine the raucous laughter of stand-up comedy with the startling thrill of live theater continues to fill seats everywhere; as nothing like this can be seen on TV.
The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? - his hysterical tour de force that tackles the babble of the sexes - has become a worldwide phenomenon, having been translated into dozens of languages and performed in just as many countries. His most recent production, The Book of Moron, searches for truth in a world that runs on hype and spin. Sex, Politics… and Other Headaches combines the best of both shows all into one. All three have brought Mr. Dubac critical acclaim and respect within the genre. He constantly tours as a traveling one-man repertory company, each performance as fresh and insightful as they were on their opening nights.
In addition to his theatrical endeavors, Dubac found significant success in the mainstream entertainment industry as well. After being chosen to study with a select group of actors under the personal tutelage of the late great Sanford Meisner he appeared in many feature films including Too Hip for the Room, After the Game, Cold Ground, Sketch Artist, Stitches, Innocent Obsession and The Rookie. His TV credits range from comedic turns in sit-coms like Growing Pains and Diff’rent Strokes to drama, with appearances on programs such as Life Goes On and Jack and Mike. He even worked in the melodramatic style of ABC’s soap opera, Loving. Prior to all this Mr. Dubac worked as a stand-up comic and opening act to the royalty of rock n roll.
Working behind the scenes, Dubac has recently co-written and directed the new avant garde solo show Oddville, starring Dave Shirley. He directed the Off-Broadway production of Man 1, Bank 0, and produced and directed the premiere performance of ¡Satiristas! at The Actors Gang in LA . He also produced and created The Barbarians of Truth an edgy and satirical comedy show for both theatrical houses and foul-smelling dive clubs.
In addition to his touring schedule, Robert stays up late at night working on the script for his next solo show, Stand-Up Jesus, an irreverent look at reverence. He is also hard at work on a DVD of The Book of Moron, as well as an audio CD titled Piss and Moan. His DVD of The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? can be purchased on amazon.com, however, for some reason Amazon calls it Inside the Male Intellect. Thankfully, that doesn’t make it any less funny.
A supremely skilled performer who challenges convention, Dubac brings every audience to new heights with profound insight and a wit of the highest caliber.
Friends call him Bob. And Bob is thankful he makes his wife, Lauren, laugh.
