This is a seriously funny show, based on a serious subject. A life-changing week in a foreign hospital included a rectal exam, enemas, the fear of post-surgery impotence and sex after 70. A Man and His Prostate gives the audience a HILARIOUS scenario. Ed Asner makes A Man and His Prostate so gut-bustingly funny.
“A Man and His Prostate” – a man, late in life, discovers his inner self in more ways than one. A near tragedy actually experienced by the writer is masterfully transformed into a comedy, perfectly portrayed by Ed Asner.

Asner’s appearance is a delightfully thrilling opportunity to experience his considerable talents. He lands every joke with monumental comic timing. In part a […]
In spite of the odd/serious nature of the subject at hand, “A Man and His Prostate” is a damn funny show. The combination of the brilliant writing by Ed Weinberger and Ed Asner’s delivery is a winner.
