Description

When writer/performer Jonathan Tipton Meyers lost his girlfriend, his business and his identity, he got in his car and drove. With the audience in the backseat, this bravura monologue chronicles Jonathan's two-year journey through the gig economy. In a timely story simultaneously personal and universal, melancholy and hilarious, he explores, through vignettes based on actual passengers, how the vehicles of segregation might just be our best hope for integration. 'Bold and brave, Jonathan is a brilliant storyteller. This show is exceptional. Don't miss' (Better-Lemons.com). 'Sweet, funny, poignant and inspiring!' (HollywoodFringe.org).

Wow! Buckle up and get ready for a wild ride through the streets of Los Angeles. This is a show with Big Heart and masterfully woven together by tour de force actor, storyteller and writer Jonathan Tipton Meyers straight from Hollywood. Having been in many an LA Uber he really does capture the experience, and even better weaves together a beautiful, thought-provoking and emotional journey.

I saw the first preview. Jonathan is the most amazing performer! I was engaged in his story the entire time. He kept me on the edge of my seat and had a very specific point of what he wanted to say about how strangers interact with each other. His show was extremely moving and hilarious, I’m in awe of his physical and emotional work! This show is a hidden fringe gem, I could not recommend it more!

Excellent show - touching, funny, eye-opening. Jonathan is a fantastic performer and takes control from the off, guiding us through the streets and lives of LA and relating it to all his new passengers. Fantastic.
