About the Show
Set in the Summer of 2012, Pitts finds himself at one Mission after the next, encountering docents and fellow tourists. Some are experts on the Catholic Church, a few are experts on Native American history, others are experts on…everything else. Yet, they have one thing in common: they are all experts on which famous black person he resembles.
