The AFS Cinema is honored to welcome the actor and raconteur Sonny Carl Davis for his live stage monologue. FIRST TO BE EATEN: RAMBLINGS OF A BIT PLAYER takes you through about Davis’ long and distinguished career, which has included such important and memorable films as THE WHOLE SHOOTIN’ MATCH, LAST NIGHT AT THE ALAMO, FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH, BERNIE and LONESOME DOVE, as well as his never-to-be-forgotten thespian turns in EVIL BONG and TERRORVISION.
If you only know him as the “diner guy” in those anti-Ted Cruz commercials, you are missing out on a rich and varied body of work, but don’t worry – he’ll tell you all about it.
Sonny has worked, and worked, and worked, and this show is his memoir of decades of sex, drugs and country music. You may never have a chance to climb into Willie Nelson’s famous tour bus for a few tokes between takes and ruin a whole day’s shooting, but through Sonny you can learn how it feels and so much more.
This show has more laughs per minute than any other show we can think of, and in between laughs you may find yourself learning a thing or two about life, the movies, and everything else worth a damn.
