David Kleinberg is the former editor of the San Francisco Chronicle’s Sunday Datebook and a stand-up comic. He brings his ground-breaking autobiographical solo show, The Voice: One Man’s Journey into Sex Addiction and Recovery, to EXIT Theatre every Friday and Saturday in October.
Kleinberg’s years’-long journey from internet porn to recovery began the night his wife walked in on him sitting at his computer, playing a highly charged version of…er, uh…solitaire.
“I’d like to think that this piece is not about addiction and shame but about courage, hope and recovery,” Kleinberg says. “It shows that a person – and that person’s significant other – can go on a journey together to get to a much better place.”
“Brilliant, belongs on HBO.” – performance artist Annie Sprinkel
“A masterpiece.” – sex addiction therapist Mark Robinet
