Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex, and My Mother

  • The Tank 312 West 36th Street, First Floor New York, NY 10018 United States (map)

“As funny as an evening with Carrie Fisher.” —Interview magazine “Glamorously tragic and howlingly funny.” —Entertainment Weekly “Brickhouse’s blunt account of addiction and recovery is laced with twisted humor.”—Out
“Mama Jean teaches more about life than anyself-help book.” —Josh Kilmer-Purcell co-star of The Fabulous Beekman Boys
“Witty, blisteringly honest, and wickedly intoxicating.” —Paul Rudnick 

Ripped from the pages of the critically-acclaimed memoir of the same title, Dangerous When Wet is Jamie’s unforgettable story of his addiction to booze, men, and his Texas tornado of a mother Mama Jean. From the age of five, all he wanted was to be at a cocktail party with a martini in one hand and a cigarette in the other. All Mama Jean wanted was to keep him at that age, her Jamie doll forever. A Texan Elizabeth Taylor with the split personality of Auntie Mame and Mama Rose, she never had a thought she didn’t speak, and she haunted him his whole life, no matter how deep in booze he swam. With sparkling wit and blistering honesty, Jamie tells the story of coming to terms with his two most defining relationships: booze and Mama Jean.

Dangerous When Wet is a part of the Proud AF Solo Fest in The Tank's 2016 Pride Fest.
