Road Dog: Life and Reflections from the Road as a Stand-up Comic
Publisher: Brilliance Audio
Date: October 2017
Duration: 5 hours 31 minutes
In Road Dog, Dov Davidoff turns the blistering insight frequently displayed in his comedy on himself. Davidoff proves that years spent observing America from the stages of comedy clubs--those that are glamorous, and those that. . . aren't--reveal all kinds of truths about the stuff we tell ourselves to get by, and the strange baggage we carry with us. And in his case, that baggage is truly strange.
Road Dog chronicles his fractured childhood days spent in a New Jersey junkyard with a gruff Jewish father and commune-loving hippie Protestant mother to the intense and sometimes hyperactive persona that his fans know and expect when he discusses the relationships, drugs, and demons that he has fought along the way. With an eye for self-reflection and a penchant for hilarious irony, Dov pulls back the curtain on a life hard-made on the road.
Chronicling the highs and often very low lows of performance life with honesty, clarity, and humility, Road Dog is by turns hysterically funny and painfully honest, and Dov tells it all with an urgency and surprising literary skill. Check out this guy's set--you'll want to stay for the encore.
