Bryan "Lubu" Roberts grew up with the possible death sentence of cystic fibrosis. He has been recovering and readjusting to a new  life after his double lung transplant a decade ago.

Bryan is now healthy, “happy” and much much wiser about the whole experience and has written a brand new autobiographical show about his illness, his recovery, his therapy, getting back to life, and yes - the mysterious origins of the donor of his new lungs, all in the format of a very dark sketch revue.  

The cast is stocked with some of Austin’s best sketch comedy performers featuring members of The Floor is Lava, Big Hug, Juicebar, Friends For Now and more!
