About Dean Friedman

This will be Friedman’s 17th Fringe appearance and his very first ‘Virtual’ Zoom Fringe!

Dean’s personal take on the craziness that’s befallen America, and the world, these past six years. Like all lullabies, it’s filled with dark deeds and disaster but couched in gentle tones, meant to soothe and comfort the listener, while gently bracing them for the potential terrors that await. Songs and stories filled with humor, angst, pathos and joy, chronicling our shared trauma enduring a toxic brew of deadly pandemic mixed with deranged political malfeasance. Told from the biased perspective of a marginally middle-class American who’s just as confused, befuddled and incredulous as everyone else.
