THE BOY WALKER: TRAGEDY MEETS STAND-UP COMEDY
“The Malach HaMavet—the Angel of Death—seizes victims arbitrarily and inflicts on their survivors wounds both horrific and seemingly irreparable. Wait. This is heavy stuff. Maybe I should begin differently. But screw it. Humans sugarcoat too much of life.”
Brute Greenbaum tells it true. An English Bulldog in his deep-sunset years, Brute struggles to hold together a father and adult son estranged yet living in the same San Francisco house. A self-proclaimed “dog among dogs,” Brute’s fierce demeanor conceals a keen intellect and compassionate soul along with the biting humor of a stand-up comic. He narrates a tale of tragic loss, odd relationships, foolish misadventures, dark secrets and the redemptive power of laughter.
