THE WAITING PERIOD: "Laughter in the Darkness"

Written and performed by Brian Copeland. Directed by David Ford.

Multitalented comedian, writer, television host, TV and radio host and commentator Brian Copeland
returns to Las Positas College on October 4, 2018 for an encore performance of his acclaimed solo show
The Waiting Period: "Laughter in the Darkness".

Like many other well-known figures, Brian suffers from debilitating bouts of depression. In "The Waiting
Period" Brian uses his unique dramatic talent and hilarious wit to shed light on the debilitating epidemic
known as depression. The show gives an unrelenting look at a 10-day period in his life: the mandatory
waiting period before he could lay his hands on a new gun with which he planned to take his own life.
Even in the midst of this tragedy, however, Brian's wonderful sense of the comedy of life does not desert
him, indeed it serves him insidiously well as a buffer against the grim reality of his intentions. There is
laughter in the darkness.

"Astonishingly funny, positively inspirational"~S.F.Chronicle
