Tracy Hawkins loves to laugh. But for awhile there, thanks to her meth habit, showing her teeth was something she was too embarrassed to do. In a few weeks, she’ll take the Oral Fixation stage in “Pulling Teeth” to talk about how she got her smile back.
Stan Cobb’s favorite road is the one he’s never been down before. Roads like these have taken him to a small town out in the country to open his first dental practice, and back to the big city to begin sharing his wisdom with others. Next month, he’ll take the Oral Fixation stage in “Pulling Teeth,” to share some of those pearls of wisdom with you.
Stan Cobb is a dentist, writer, speaker, artist, teacher, cowboy and minister. Stan started his speaking career as “The Cowboy Dentist from Spearman, Texas.” The Director of Ethics Education at Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry, Dr. Cobb is also the Dallas Director of The Christian Medical and Dental Associations.
Greg Silva just loves telling funny stories — especially ones involving poop. Fortunately, a certain hospital stay gave him the poop story of a lifetime. And next month he’ll rock the Oral Fixation stage like a post-surgery deuce in “Pulling Teeth.”
Greg Silva has spent the last two decades trying desperately to make people laugh at things he’s either written or performed. He fills his considerable amount of downtime with videogames and bike rides. His wife and dogs think he’s hilarious.
Don’t miss these upcoming stories told live @ Dallas City Performance Hall on Wednesday, April 13.
There’s no better way to sink your teeth into spring than by spending an evening with Big D’s dynamic live storytelling series for adults, Oral Fixation (An Obsession with True Life Tales). Funnier than laughing gas and more effective than Novocain, “Pulling Teeth” is just what the dentist ordered. Taking the Dallas City Performance Hall stage on Wednesday, April 13 at 8 p.m., our seven storytellers will align your smile, definitely strike a nerve, and if your soul has any cavities — they will not only be filled, but crowned. With more wisdom than wisdom teeth, more laughs than nitrous, and more depth than a root canal, this show has it all: Moroccan adventures and small town dentistry, stubborn baby teeth and stubborn colons, Big Daddy wires and Big Apple delinquents, meth-mouth makeovers and cowboy dentist do-overs. The prognosis is positive, but you must fill your prescription. First, though, some introductions are in order:
- As a first-year teacher in NYC, Anna Lassiter toils to save a troubled, violent kid.
- When comedian Greg Silva survives colon cancer, pooping proves problematic.
- Braces and retainers just about do Poonam Desai in.
- OF Veteran Peter Luby discovers the joys of third-world dentistry and marriage.
- Author and attorney Yasmin Waring struggles with both a stubborn father and a stubborn baby tooth.
- Dental school professor Stan Cobb discovers that pain can lead to enlightenment.
- And former meth addict Tracy Hawkins learns the power of second chances and special smiles.
