The Male Intellect (An Oxymoron)

Slick, smooth, glib and assured, actor-writer Robert Dubac and his extended standup comedy routine "The Male Intellect (An Oxymoron)" seem poised to repeat previous successes in Denver and Chicago with an open-ended run in Boston. Mining territory similar to "Rob Becker's Defending the Caveman," Dubac plays Bobby, a bewildered male chauvinist who has been dumped by his fiancee and is desperate to answer the question "What do women want?" before attempting a phone reconciliation.

With:
Performed by Robert Dubac.

Dubac skillfully portrays five other characters responsible for Bobby’s chauvinism, including an Army colonel, a French foreign-exchange student, a 123-year-old bachelor and a sex machine. Along with the ability to wiggle cigarettes in his ears, Dubac also manages to seem both politically correct and incorrect at the same time, trading on well-worn gender stereotypes and giving them some fresh twists.

Uninhibited about discussing penises, multiple orgasms and various sexual peccadilloes (not to mention littering his script with four-letter words), Dubac retains his handsome savoir-faire, skirts offensiveness and charms his audience.
