What Is the Story of The Banana Monologues?
The humorous one-man show tells the story of Gus Weiderman, a man in a challenging long-distance relationship with his girlfriend, Alexis. While Gus knows that Alexis might not be the girl for him, his “banana,” nicknamed Sergeant Johnson, refuses to break up with her. As Alexis begins fighting with Gus and finding solace in her best friend Darby, Gus tries to break up, but his sergeant won’t budge. Will Gus finally regain control of his life, or will he forever be a slave to his “banana”?

"Brennan, who accurately describes himself as 'a poor man’s Patrick Swayze,' is an engaging, energetic performer who gets as many laughs from his awkward, white-guy disco dancing as his one-liners."
