It may take a village to raise a child, but it takes a child to raise a father.
When a racially-ambiguous stand-up comic bombs offstage with his pre-K daughter, he sets out to resolve nagging questions of identity and manhood in order to finally become a stand-up guy.
Rob is beige… a confused, beige stand-up comedian just hitting his 30’s. His brown friends say he’s too light-skinned to use the “N” word, and his white friends?—well, they just don’t get him at all. Still, he’s sure he’s making the beige thing work… that is, until the birth of his daughter Brooklyn shows him that he’s sure of nothing at all. When the little monster starts talking – and asking questions – Rob realizes he’s the one in need of answers, so he sets off in search of a village… a village that can raise him to be the kind of man and father he has never known but is determined to come.
Meet The Main Characters
Beige. Confused. Funny. That’s Rob. A tall, lanky stand-up comic with an Afro that juts out in all directions and a headful of notions that are just as untamed. But he’s also got the determination to get it all under control and become the kind of father worthy of the new little love of his life.
Rob’s fiercely independent, on-again, off-again girlfriend and Brooklyn’s mother. Venus is a smart, strong black woman who suffers no fools, including Rob… though she is still charmed by his fooling. Reliable, responsible, and resolute, she seems to excel at all things Rob does not.
Rob’s perfectly silly, pre-K daughter Brooklyn is the love – and the monster – of his life. She has her father’s hair, her mother’s smarts, and a big personality all her own
