Once dubbed “the city’s brightest satiric star” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Charlie Varon is back with a new one-man show at the Marsh Theater. In “Feisty Old Jew,” Varon plays Bernie, a grumpy 83-year-old who makes a massive bet that he can catch a wave in Bolinas. Varon joins us to talk about the show, and about his long career in Bay Area theater.

Charlie Varon, award-winning San Francisco-based writer and performer, whose one-man shows include "Rabbi Sam" and "Ralph Nader is Missing;" and director of Dan Hoyle's hit shows "Tings Dey Happen" and "The Real Americans"

    Mr. Varon’s Rush Limbaugh is much younger and healthier sounding than the real thing.
