Slash Coleman
Adult Storytelling
Often compared to author David Sedaris, Coleman is also the Psychology Today personal perspectives blogger and an advice columnist at howdoidate.com. Come enjoy an evening with Slash as he performs stories from his bestselling memoir “The Bohemian Love Diaries”. Infused with southern charm, these irresistibly weird and wonderful stories chronicle the author’s upbringing in Richmond during the 70’s and 80’s in a warped but warmhearted household of eccentric artists. Slash lives in New York City where he performs and writes new material for the stage, film, and television.
