From the mind and heart of award-winning comedian Slash Coleman, Neon Man and Me is a tribute to the life of Coleman’s best friend, Mark Jamison, a gifted neon artist from Roanoke who died in 2004 as he was hanging a neon sign. His tragic, early death shocked and saddened the entire community. Neon Man and Me faithfully recreates Coleman’s one-man stage play as he takes the form of 30 characters who tell an expressive, touching, and very funny story of one young man's struggle to come to terms with the death of his best friend.
A delightful blend of stand-up and physical comedy, the performance consists of seven stories and an original musical score that Coleman plays on his guitar. Since making its debut in 2005, the play has made three national tours, played Off-Broadway and has earned Coleman a 2008 nomination for the Virginia Governor’s Award in the Arts. Neon Man and Me, originally created as a care package to the Jamison family, has been called, “a joyous tribute to friendship.”
