Dementia statistics  are daunting. One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or other dementia;  every 66 seconds someone in the US develops the disease. Monologist Josh Kornbluth has immersed himself in this realm, and incorporates his experience in "Josh's Brain Improvs", a coproduction with The Marsh theater in San Francisco. 

Kornbluth bases his series of improvisations on his experiences working at the Memory and Aging Center at UCSF and Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, and his work as an artist-in-residence and volunteer at the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco. 

Josh Kornbluth has performed autobiographical one-man shows since 1987 -- The San Francisco Chronicle declared, “Kornbluth takes a world we ignore, or barely  observe, and brings it into brilliant comic relief.”
