Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Comedian and best-selling author Greg Behrendt stifles the sound of the dying hipster deep inside as he deconstructs the popular perception of "cool" while simultaneously re-defining the concept of "adulthood" in this stand up performance captured live at the Improv in San Jose. In his best-selling book He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys, Greg Behrendt exposed the female population to the true motivations behind the male psyche. Now with his twenties a distant memory, his thirties fading fast, and his forties becoming an ever deepening reality, the once-cool Gen-Xer finds himself increasingly identified as the "creepy old guy" at rock shows. In this insightful and introspective look at the cultural definition of "cool," Behrendt begs the question of why age is often the first indicator of said status while exploring just what it means to have the youthful indicator stripped away by age when you still feel like a teenager at heart.
