Eric Bogosian is the OBIE-award winning writer and performer of "Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll," and "Drinking in America," as well as his plays "Suburbia" and "Talk Radio," both made into major motion pictures.
Adding to his growing body of work which includes Drinking in America (Vintage: Random, 1987) and Talk Radio (Vintage: Random, 1988), Bogosian's one-man show pokes fun at the excesses and absurdities of a generation weaned on rock 'n' roll. From his portrayal of a rock star who glamorizes drugs while warning kids to ``just say no'' to his satirization of male bonding, Bogosian plays with the icons and myths of a myopic and self-indulgent society that overconsumes even as it weeps for the less fortunate. The author joins monologists Spalding Gray ( Sex and Death to the Age 14 , LJ 6/15/86) and Lily Tomlin as part of a growing theatrical movement that blends social criticism with the one-person format. More acerbic and low-brow than either Gray or Tomlin, Bogosian brings to the theater a penetrating and often biting criticism of what he calls a ``schizoid'' culture.-- Gerald Large, California State Univ.
