See you all at The Plunge!


A show beyond this reality? A one-man cabaret about never, EVER fitting in. Told through four days in the 90's. Described as, "Reinventing the form," "amateur," "musically outstanding," "a waste of time," "earnest, heartbreaking, & real."


Carl Kozlowski fell asleep at the wheel of his car, made Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank think he died mid-interview and had to race an LA bus at 90 mph. Now he's ready to share his craziest narcoleptic misadventures with you. Strap in!
