Daniel J. Watt's The Jam: Only Child | Under The Radar 2020
January 6 - January 20, 2020

DANIEL J. WATTS’ THE JAM: ONLY CHILD

Starring Daniel J. Watts
Featuring DJ Duggz
Directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz

A play-on-words, THE JAM: ONLY CHILD pays homage to Daniel Watts' great-grandmother who, after making jam from scratch, would share with others what she was unable to consume herself. THE JAM: ONLY CHILD is Watts' continuation of that legacy blending elements of stand-up comedy and compelling storytelling with his original spoken word, often set to music and/or dance.

THE JAM: ONLY CHILD is the product of two years of therapy," says Watts. "I have an analogy about therapy suggesting that it's like inviting a stranger to the attic of your mind and having them help you clean it out. I realized that being an only child and a latchkey kid in a single parent home contributed to excess storage in my attic and therapy helped me sift through a lot of it and, ultimately, let some things go. By sharing my story I hope to inspire others to go through their attics in an effort to both examine the cost of holding on and experience the healing power of letting go."

...but this one had the intimacy of feeling like you were personally invited by Watts to share in his pain, and he would accept yours in return.
