Award-winning playwright/performer Charlie Varon performs his most recent comedic work, Feisty Old Jew for one day only, at the Osher Marin JCC. This, the 10th show he’s developed in collaboration with Director David Ford comes hot off the successful and highly acclaimed premier run at San Francisco’s Marsh Theater.

“reliably magnetic charm… material as richly descriptive… subtle as a fine short story”-Robert Hurwitt | San Francisco Chronicle theater critic

Two unique rides at a carnival of comedic monologues at the Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts at the Osher Marin JCC.

With “Feisty Old Jew”, award winning Charlie Varon takes the audience on a ride with Bernie, who at 83 is fed up with so much, including San Francisco's tattoo parlors, medical marijuana dispensaries, designer coffee and waiting for cabs… which leads him to thumb a ride to Marin… and takes Bernie and his new acquaintances for quite an adventure.
