Performance Dates

The non-stop comic journey of Afro Jo... An African American “everyman” as he travels from adolescence to adulthood in search of the ultimate state of “hip”, a place of comfort and peace in an ever confusing and changing world...a fast paced journey crossing boundaries of race, class and gender. After 30 cities and an off-Broadway run, Wizard of Hip returns almost 30 years later, a little grayer, a little older, and hopefully a little wiser, but still crackling with the revelatory journey that made it an audience favorite more than two decades ago.
