F*ck Tinder: a love story
After a sold out 9-city tour from New York to Los Angeles, The Moth StorySLAM champion David Rodwin brings his award-winning show "F*ck Tinder: a love story" back to PianoFight, for a special Valentine’s Day run. He’ll provide much needed laughs for single folk on that depression-inducing holiday. And those in relationships will go home feeling so much better about being in a relationship.
"F-Tinder: a love story" is a comedic storytelling rollercoaster The Washington Post declared “Inspiring” and DCist, “Hilarious and heartbreaking.”
After getting held up at gunpoint the night his girlfriend breaks up with him, David moves to San Francisco and goes on dates with 120 women in 2 years - in search of love, but finding everything else. From a first date hook-up who unexpectedly brings along her infant, to being taken to a sex party by a woman who’d just told him “I love you,” David brings you on a journey you’re glad he took and you didn’t. David’s crazy stories surprisingly grow into a serious spiritual commentary on modern dating, which leads to a tale of love that takes a strange twist - giving audiences hope.
In a time when men are more hesitant than ever to talk seriously and with vulnerability about sex in public, David dives in and divulges every detail of the insanity of dating in the wilds of The Bay Area. Far from a gratuitous stand-up routine, with easy jokes about sex, David crafts an authentic and enthralling narrative, in which he cuts his heart open in pursuit of that elusive connection.
Quite simply, David lived his life like a tragedy so he could share it with you as a comedy.
