The Case Against Happiness: A One-Man Courtroom Comedy

1hr. 30min.


An evening of true, funny stories about New York, being Jewish, family and the power of a bowl of Cream of Broccoli soup. In this hilarious and touching play, attorney Howard Smith practices in the courtroom of life arguing the case that happiness is overrated. It's the truth, the whole truth, nothing but the truth. Honest. Written and performed by Howard Smith. Howard had a normal childhood and a good relationship with his parents. He grew up in Queens, New York and moved to California to attend Law School. He's a licensed attorney who enjoys it so much he does stand-up. He has performed his own brand of stand-up comedy throughout California, in New York and a few places in between. He has been making the transition to becoming a serious actor and for the past two years has been featured in the long running hit Sex, Relationships and Sometimes . . . Love at the Actors Playpen. He is currently seeking representation, and a little piece of mind. Back by popular demand. Creative Consultant Wendy Hammers (Sopranos, Curb your Enthusiasm, creator of The Hungry and Horny Show). Produced by Local 3 Productions. Proceeds benefit the Save the Playhouse Campaign.
