About the show

DION FLYNN is best known as Barack Obama on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and has over 60 appearances as 14 different characters on both The Tonight Show & Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon. Cited by Oprah Magazine as “one of our favorite creative thinkers...” Dion's solo improv has been described as: "Alternately maniacal and tender, vulnerable and ballsy, Dion Flynn looses his brand of liquid, synapse-rich comedy in an evening of interactive improv which takes the audience on a loopy, looping comic odyssey from which the ghosts of Orson Welles and Spalding Grey are never far. Flynn’s mind is both shock and absorber, as spongy and receptive as the suspension in a New York taxicab: pretty soon, you’re flying." — Tom Shone, Film Critic, Intelligent Life



"Dion Flynn's solo theatrical improvisations are what it would be if Jackson Pollack and James Joyce did comedy." -An audience member named Nick, pressed for comment during a show by Dion.



"Dion's solo performance at The PIT is an experience. He takes the audience on the same journey he is going through as he figures out his show/performance art piece/happening. And it's all in an empty space, armed with only a microphone, a couch and a piano. It's a magic show where you get to see the magician astounded by his own illusions. Dion is a natural improviser, a born-performer, and it certainly shows in this impressive weekly solo improv piece. In a world of so many 8-person improv teams and shows, it is refreshing to see someone take the risk of going at it alone--and it is a special treat that it happens to be Dion Flynn." - Chris Aurillio
