From True Blood to Mad Men, Justified to Rectified, Modern Family to iCarly, and, who can forget his season-stealing performance as Lincoln Meyer, the villain fans loved to hate, on Boston Legal, you’ve seen David Dean Bottrell on screen. Now the acclaimed character actor shines in this personal and poignant solo show David Dean Bottrell Makes Love, his hilarious and poignant look at love: How do you find love; how do you hang on to it; and what do you do when it goes away?
Framed by his efforts to craft the perfect Match.com ad, Bottrell weaves an indelible collage of tales (spicy and tame) about his search to find and understand love. From his “engagement” at age five to a little neighbor girl (for the sole purpose of swinging on her swing set) to believing he has finally found the perfect husband (only to discover his spouse’s devastating secret), David Dean Bottrell Makes Love: A One-Man Show is a 75-minute comic whirlwind of totally true “love stories.”
“We are living in strange, stressful, lonely times,” says Bottrell. “And this show is ultimately a life-affirming look at how with a little courage, can still connect.”
Fans of The Moth and the New York Times’ Modern Love column will fall for the show that played sold-out runs at Dixon Place in NYC and the Comedy Central Stage in LA, where the LA Times called it “hysterical” and SoCal Public Radio praised it as “hilarious and touching.” David Dean Bottrell Makes Love: A One-Man Show was released as an audiobook by Penguin Random House in 2020.
