Having a few minutes to pick the mind of Roger C. Snair is the most predictably unpredictable things I’ve ever done. I’ve seen Roger perform, and had a pretty good idea of his talents — actor, playwright, dramatist, poet, and so much more … but was he a pizza nut? After a passionate conversation about New Jersey geography, we got the answer to that question.
How much do you like pizza?
A lot. I love to be devastated and torn by a pizza with real pizzazz.
What is your favorite pizza topping?
Extra cheese, mushrooms, pepperoni, Pepto-Bismol.
What was your family’s “Pizza Night?”
I’m Jewish. We had a gefilte fish night. Hey, that would make a far better topping than anchovies.
Favorite slice in Philly?
Olympus on South Street
Favorite slice elsewhere?
Bellmawr Pizza, Browning Road, Bellmawr, NJ.
Anything else you want to add?
I like to eat pizza until I turn into a flatulent bomb. It isn’t pizza unless it makes you fart like a machine gun. Great pizza rips your GI system to shreds and leaves you in an entirely gaseous state.
So for those of you keeping score — Roger is one of us, a certified pizza-haulic. You can catch Roger doing what Roger does at Brendan Kennedy’s Guilty Pleasures this Wednesday, May 4th at 8 PM at the Shubin Theater, alongside Kristen Schier, Andy Moskowitz, Doogie Horner, and JP Boudwin. You can bet I’ll be there (and probably Lorenzo’s later in the night!) Cool!
