About the show

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. More…

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.

Part of Soho Playhouse's 2018 Fringe Encore Series.

Gia On The Move

for a previous production “An astounding solo performance about growing up bi-racial in America. Posley is an incredibly charming and natural performer, and he warns us straight up: white people, you may get offended...Funny, engaging, and effortlessly talented...Told honestly and with incredible humor, and using video in a simple and effective way, Posley’s story will bring tears to your eyes and have you screaming with laughter. An hour of theatre you don’t want to miss!” Full Review

Funny, Preachy, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Platitudinous

See it if u want more Ted Talk than performance. Clever, funny, engaging, charming performer wavers between raw personal insight and well worn themes

Don't see it if u expect edgy challenging insight on racism, race relations, police brutality. But very personal show, big thumbs up and highly recommended

Poignant, Edgy, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you're drawn to the compelling, timeless, deeply personal topic of racial identity—esp when it's one imposed on you vs how you see yourself.

Don't see it if you'd be uncomfortable hearing of & seeing graphic examples of racist behavior; you expect theatre setting; this is in a tiny, cramped bar.

97
Funny, Profound, Relevant, Entertaining

See it if You want a hilarious first hand perspective of growing up biracial. I was touched by how he shared his political awakening to prejudice.

Don't see it if You are sensitive to racism and don't enjoy joking about it. Or feel self conscious and uncomfortable with exploring the race issue.
