Ed Asner to perform 'A Man and his Prostate' at Playhouse

Related Stories

Ed Asner will perform his one man show, "A Man and His Prostate," on Tuesday, Sept. 19, at 7:30 p.m. on the mainstage of the Flat Rock Playhouse.

The story monologue is based on the experience of Edwin “Ed" Weinberger, an award-winning comedy writer who has collaborated with Asner for more than 40 years.

Here are excerpts from a review of the show in Huffington Post by Jed Ryan:

"'A Man and His Prostate'" gives the audience one hilarious 'you-just-can’t-make-this-stuff-up' scenario after another. There are some priceless lines from the show that I’d love to repeat, but I won’t. It’s not that I’m concerned about “offending” any readers(!), but more so because I’m convinced that those lines should ONLY be heard from Ed Asner’s 86-year old mouth. In fact, Asner is EXACTLY what makes A Man and His Prostate so gut-bustingly funny. His character is a mix of curmudgeonly and cuddly, and his telling of Weinberger’s extended anecdotes about flatulence, urinary retention, and his own, shall we say, 'Mr. Ed' is deliciously deadpan and saucily sardonic."
