About This Show

Actor and impersonator Carl David is being held without bail for performing his Trump-inspired version of Shakespeare’s King Lear. Carl is forced to perform his King Lear to an unseen online audience of one, as the president restlessly watches remotely from a live and public feed. The stakes are high: If Trump likes Carl and his show, Carl lives. If not, Carl dies. But how can Carl get through a show where he has created a Lear based on Trump himself without offending the audience?
