What do you believe in? HEAD STUFF is an interactive comedy that wrestles with the nature of belief through the lens of one person’s love of high school debate and predilection for head injuries. Blending stand-up comedy, storytelling, and gonzo theatre, HEAD STUFF will make you laugh, make you uncomfortable, and make you believe (in what? Who knows). If you’ve ever wondered how you can find presence in the world through prayer, shock collars, or The Human Centipede this show is for you.

    Definitely something you should go see. JT has a way of giving his audience agency in his show.

      Really impressive. That fantastic combo of funny AND smart. Put it on your schedule.

    The kind of show you can sit with a beer and not only be entertained, but leave with more knowledge and empathy.

    JT delivers his headstuff with thoughtful, natural comedy and the reverence and vulnerability worthy of his own Netflix special. He takes the audience on a trip through his head — and somehow through our own as well, even if we’ve never seen The Human Centipede — and we all exit the tram not only with limbs and personal belongings intact, but another facet to view the world inside and around us. I can’t wait to see how this show progresses!

      A genuinely funny and frequently surprising night of vulnerability that avoids the pesky trap of self-indulgence so many one person shows can fall into.

      JT has one of the most effortlessly endearing stage presences you’ll ever see, and his stories and structures are shot through with self-aware wit and pathos.

      It’s the quality of show that, while perfectly comfortable at a Fringe Fest, could hold its own on any stage anywhere at any level.

      You’ll laugh A LOT. Just see it already!

    This is a perfect Fringe show! I was laughing, I was weeping…JT brings out the audiences empathy–toward him, toward ourselves and toward others as he searches for meaning and presence. A must see!

    I was sad-crying and pee-in-my-pants-laughing simultaneously at a few points in the show; that, in my book, is indicative of masterful work!!!

    Seriously a great night of show. I don’t know how much time he spent on those callbacks, but it was the most I have ever seen and they were all funny. Absolutely loved it and had a really good time. If you go, make sure to volunteer for the audience interaction parts!! Don’t miss this.

    JT knocks this out of the park from beginning to end. If you’ve survived “gifted” programs and/or tackled a crisis of faith of identity with facts and reason, this show will really speak to you. But even if not, you’re going to have a wonderful night of…giving and receiving. Yeah!

    I absolutely loved it. This was our fourth fringe show, but from his delivery, audience interaction, but also discussing serious topics like mental health and religious trauma-made you feel like you were just at a bar drinking with him like old pals. Great job JT, don’t walk. RUN to this show!

  9. Michael Foster on July 28, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    This show was so fun! Funny, witty, and sweet. JT is just so darn charming and interesting to watch..

  10. Bobby Miller on July 28, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    JT is a great story teller. Fun from beginning to end.

  11. Jamie Campbell on July 29, 2022 at 12:00 am

    It kind-of sneaks up on you how brave this show is. It didn’t really hit me until afterward, because I was too busy laughing while JT was on stage. Funny, vulnerable, and even kind-of dangerous – it’s a show I won’t soon forget. It’s a perfect Fringe show, but also polished and funny enough to exist on any size stage. Don’t miss it!
