STARF**KER Starring Jason Schommer

As a senior in high school, Jason infamously predicted in his yearbook that he would be famous. Well, that hasn't happened...yet. But what has happened is a crazy life spent orbiting around the rich and famous for the past twenty years. From working at "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" and Clear Channel Radio to now living in Las Vegas and working as Louie Anderson's opening act, Jason has brushed elbows with some of the biggest, brightest, and infamous stars of our time. Katy Perry, Lady GaGa, Kathy Griffin, Rosie O'Donnell, Simon LeBon (Duran Duran), Jessica Simpson, Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, Jewel, Criss Angel, Holly Madison, Rich Little, Screech (Screech? Yes, Screech.). Jason has met them all on his quest for fame. Who wants to be nobody when you can be somebody! And Jason is hell bent on being somebody!
In this hilarious one man show, Jason retraces his life back from growing up in Little Falls, Minnesota and his journey to New York City and Las Vegas, to now returning to his hometown to perform at his twenty year high school class reunion and all the celebrities that he has encountered along the way. From crashing a red carpet, sneaking on to a movie set, and showing no fear when face to face with Barbara Walters in a hallway. Jason has found himself in some of the funniest situations a pop culture die-hard could dream of. Some celebrity moments were awesome...and others, well...not so much. Why did Katy Perry tell Jason that he is her "tiny dancer"? Why did Jason and Dolly Parton talk about Boy George? What happened when the boy next door finally met the girl next door? The quest to fame has been a wild ride filled with amazing victories and epic failures but still continues...
