About the Show

While waiting in line to receive his 2nd vaccination shot – Don Reed reminisces on a treasure trove of stories all related to GOING OUT and our collective excitement and apprehension to begin again.

“It’s Waiting for Godot” meets 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s nightlife.”


“Side splitting”  – “Reed sets the mood with knockout dance moves and raw physicality”   THEATRIUS “Reed can do it all with grace, humor, and empathy.” – “Along the way, he embodies various characters with specific accents and body language.” SF Examiner

About the Performer

Don Reed, (HBO/Snap Judgment/CBS) was the 2016 Theatre Bay Area – WINNER – for Outstanding Solo Production East 14th and is currently Co-Producing filmmaker Robert Townsend‘s solo hit Living the Shuffle. A San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Nominee and NAACP Triple Nominee for Best Actor & Best Playwright, he is presently playing one of the lead roles in the Amazon Prime comedy series Bartlett which is co-financed and stars Lin Manuel Miranda (creator of the Broadway smash HAMILTON) in a recurring role.

Don has performed, written and directed for film, television and theater. A memorable performance on Townsend’s HBO Partners and Crime Special of up-and-coming comedians years ago caught the attention of some Hollywood guns and led to many recurring and guest starring roles. You may have heard his voice on Spiderman, Johnny Quest, SNL and most recently as the voice of the cat on 2 Broke Girls. Additionally, Don has written, directed, produced and starred in short films for HBO’s Def Jam. He has written and starred in work for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN and can be seen in the Netflix feature film Unleashed alongside stars from Showtime’s Shameless. Reed was the opening act/warm-up comedian for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for over 1,000 episodes, and recently shared an excerpt story from the aforementioned East 14th – on NPR/WYNC’s Snap Judgment so compelling that it was woven into the graduate writing curriculum at American University in D.C.  See it here…“I Miss Toni” 

Don asks that you support to impact the challenges of sexually exploited youth. He is also a board member of the thriving 51Oakland foundation keeping music and the arts alive in Oakland Public Schools.
