Not to be confused with the musical “The Book of Mormon”; Robert Dubac’s “The Book Of Moron” will be making its appearance at the Times-Union Center’s Terry Theater for two engagements this November. If you are yearning for some satire that cuts with a clever intelligent edge; if you are 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!
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, “The Book Of Moron” crashes head first into the barriers of sex, race, religion, politics and the media. It may be offensive to some but there’s laughter for all!”
Having been brainwashed by a culture that worships Kardashians over character, delusion over truth and selfies over self-effacement; Dubac begins his journey with one simple question. Who am I? What do I believe? What’s the point? Okay, that’s three questions but suffice to say, he has no answers. Just voices. Inner voices who come to life with precision and wit. One by one they pull him into a hysterical alternative universe of critical thought in search of the bigger picture. It’s a head trip on a banana peel.
In “The Book Of Moron” Dubac portrays, ROBERT, an everyman who has lost sight of the bigger picture. He’s been bombarded by so much hype and spin he can’t remember who he is or what he believes. Does he have a purpose? Can he think for himself? Is the truth in the details or in the pudding? He hasn’t a clue. He racks his brain searching for answers but finds nothing but voices.
Robert Dubac belongs to a unique breed of humorists, bringing to mind the best of Lily Tomlin and Mark Twain. He creates 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, that’s for sure.
