Johnny O’Callaghan’s Who’s Your Daddy? is the uplifting and funny true story of his adoption of a Ugandan orphan. No one expected the single, gay, out-of-work actor to ever become a father – but a documentary shoot in Africa turns into an odyssey of the heart.
The Los Angeles Times called O’Callaghan “a charmer (think Denis Leary’s puckish younger brother),” adding that the play’s “infectious comedy and irreverent insights keep the evening sharp.” LA Weekly praised the show: “It’s a GO! A well-calibrated performance that elicits audience adulation.” Last summer, Who’s Your Daddy transferred to Edinburgh Fringe with The Independent calling it “superb” and Scots Gay Magazine recommending it as “a powerful, moving piece of theatre.”
