More Information

"[Jamie is] an uproariously funny raconteur who masterfully wields colorful descriptors and sculpts what feels like one absorbing long-form story. His mother looms like a specter throughout it all, as he uses masterful timing to make tales of his rise and fall deeply involving and insightful." Full Rave Review in Twin Cities-Pioneer Press

“A masterful gay solo performance and tribute to motherhood; Hilarious & Wise. . .the performance is very, very funny. . .Brickhouse is ultimately a man with a big heart, quick wit, and a story worth telling.  Dangerous When Wet emanates the vision of an artist who has masterfully honed his craft and richly apprehended hard won insight.  We see how Jamie inherited his love for life from his gloriously vibrant mother. What a tribute!”—John Townsend, Lavender (full rave review)

5 Stars in SingleWhiteFringeGeek: "Jamie Brickhouse weaves a tale you couldn't tell just anybody's mother, but my Mom and I both liked it a lot; Brickhouse spares neither his mother nor himself but it's a hell of a story."
