Day of the Dead Daddy is the story of me and my siblings traveling to a tiny, remote town in the high desert of Mexico to bury our dead father.
(We tried to bury him while he was alive, but he would have none of it.)
In this funny, heartbreaking, and (swear-to-God) true story, I take the audience on a journey that spans six decades.
While playing more than 7 characters and revealing some family secrets along the way.
