Sooz Kempner: PlayStation
Award-winning viral sensation Sooz (Best Newcomer Musical Comedy Awards, Funny Women Variety Award Winner, Broadway World Best Comedy Show Nominee) got a PlayStation, the first adult console, in 1998 and finally felt grown-up. But is she? Growing up is a stand-up show for anyone who remembers the 90s, had big dreams as a kid and has struggled with the very notion of being an adult. Suitable for gamers and non-gamers alike!
