THE ELEPHANT IN MY CLOSET presented by Keeping Watch as part of the 2013 Cincinnati Fringe Festival. Click here for a list of show times, local media coverage and other reviews.

David Lee Nelson’s one-man show, THE ELEPHANT IN MY CLOSET is a laugh-out-loud, smart, straight-talking 60+ minutes.

For those of you worried the show might be a extreme party-bashing tirade, nothing could be farther from the truth. Nelson begins with a quick history of the Republican Party, then recounts his own personal political history by Presidential election by Presidential election.

Running as a thread throughout the show, is Nelson’s relationship with his father. The only two men in a house full of women, politics was one of underpinnings in their close relationship. How would voting for Obama in 2012 affect their relationship?

Nelson is a talented performer with great comic timing. He has an easiness on stage and quickly establishes a great rapport with the audience. The multi-media used for the show are well done and well-chosen.

For laughs per minute, the funniest show at the fringe and worth a stop.
