Dangerous When Wet: A Memoir





Lying on an ER gurney following a failed suicide attempt, Jamie Brickhouse was more terrified of the fact that Mama Jean was flying in from Texas than the alcoholic trauma that had landed him in the ER in the first place. So begins this astonishing memoir – by turns both hilarious and deeply moving – about this native Texan’s long struggle with alcohol, his complicated relationship with Mama Jean, and his sexuality. Join us tonight as he shares his story.


Brickhouse spent over two decades in the publishing industry, most recently at two major houses as head of their publicity and lecture divisions. He has also performed stand-up comedy and recorded voice-overs for the legendary cartoon TV show, Beavis and Butthead. A native of Beaumont, Texas, Brickhouse lives in Manhattan with his partner, Michael.
