Del Shores in Sordid Confessions
The Southern-loved writer/director/producer and most recently added stand-up comedian just played to rave reviews in his new stand-up show at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in New York City, The Rose Room in Dallas and The Jungle in Atlanta.
Del Shores, creator of the cult favorite TV series Sordid Lives (starring Olivia Newton-John, Bonnie Bedelia, Jason Dottley, Ann Walker, Newell Alexander, Rosemary Alexander, Beth Grant, Rue McClanahan, Leslie Jordan and Caroline Rhea), brings his hilarious one-man show to The Art House August 6-9.
Whether he's recalling details of his "slut" years or calling out the assholes and bitches he's worked with, no subject is off-limits in Del Shores: SORDID CONFESSIONS.
"Del says what most people think. He has no censor -- on or offstage. Audiences love him because of his Ã¢bless-their-hearts' Texas charm," explains Caroline Rhea. "Look, I'm on Paxil and I don't give a shit anymore," Shores warns.
