“Comfort is a charming, versatile performer: He can dance, shift personas, inhabit multiple characters with dialects and physicality, and somehow exude a vulnerability wrapped in confidence…. a talented performer with TS sharing honest, touching stories.”

A LITTLE ABOUT THE PLAY
April 2014. Gardiner Comfort travels to Washington, DC to attend the Tourette Syndrome Association National Conference. During the conference, Comfort encounters others (mostly children) with his neurological disorder and, for the first time in his life, it actually felt normal to have Tourette’s. Using an erratic and energetic performance style (a nod to Tourette’s itself), and evocative details of his week in DC, Comfort shares his life as an actor with Tourette Syndrome. THE ELEPHANT IN EVERY ROOM I ENTER is a strikingly intimate solo show created by Comfort and his frequent collaborator, Kel Haney (YOU’RE NOT TOUGH — HERE, Dixon Place). After a successful at run at The Club last season, Gardiner & Kel return to LaMaMa for the official world premiere.
