It’s Pronounced Metrosexual is a one-man comedy about snap judgments, identity, and oppression–funny stuff, right?

IPM was written through the eyes of straight man who is oftentimes perceived to be gay.  It’s real life: true stories collected and sewn together to create a 45-minute show ripe with laughs that leaves the audience thinking.  As Sam tells his story,he creates a visceral metaphor for stereotyping as a form of oppression.  The issues and over-arching themes he discusses can be applied to all groups–it’s not just for ‘primped straight boys.’
