From the Fringe program:

Have you ever had to give up something you love? From the creative team of Spitting in the Face of the Devil comes award-winning monologist Bob Brader’s new comedy about his love affair with smoking. Bob realizes the complex connections he has through smoking: how it helped him through a turbulent childhood, created opportunities and one particular connection too precious to let go. Winner, Best Autobiographical Show, United Solo.
