Jimmy Shubert - Zero Tolerance (video)



Jimmy Shubert is a modern classic: a bold, brash, sly man in a well-cut, pick-stitched suit giving voice to all those moments when the better angels of our nature fail us. When our tolerance and progressivism run up against the very sight of stand-up paddle-board yoga and we finally, in a gasp of futile incredulity, let loose our inner curmudgeons. “From the Greatest Generation to therapy cats and ball deodorant,” Shubert muses wild-eyed, crackling and uncontained. He peppers his tirades with everything from Proust deep-cuts to vagina monologues, stalks and gestures and shouts to the rafters, his physicality betraying the slick production and careful stage dressing and beautifully lit audience. Far from decrying modernity or belittling humanity, Shubert finds glee in our foibles and hope in the flecks of self-awareness still evident in our laughter. He knows it’s absurd. As long as the audience, too, can recognize, recoil from, and relish in the absurdity of modern life, there’s a chance for us humans yet. When it comes down to it, nonsense is really the only thing for which Jimmy Shubert has “Zero Tolerance.”
