The Critically Acclaimed “Midlife Ganger: Redemption Song” One-Man Show Returns by Popular Demand


Los Angeles, CA (November 12th, 2016) — Extreme Interventionist and star of A&E’s Extractors, Evan “Bullet” James, is returning to the East Coast for the critically acclaimed “Midlife Gangster: Redemption Song – The Life and Times of Bullet James,” a one-man show dramatizing his chaotic journey from almost dying of a cocaine overdose in a gas station bathroom to redemption with a purpose.  “Midlife Gangster” will be coming to The Flight Theater for one performance on November 12th at 3pm.

“Midlife Gangster” examines the life of a man now known to be a pioneer in the drug and alcohol intervention world. Mr. Evan “Bullet” James is the inventor of the Extreme Intervention Model, a category of intervention meant for individuals in extremely dangerous situations.  In the past 23 years, Bullet has sustained over 1,214 successful interventions and has saved countless lives.  His work was recently captured by A&E for the docu-series “Extractors.”

“Bullet” narrates and dramatizes his turbulent, insane, hilarious, heart wrenching journey from a broken home to star athlete to being enticed to run with street gangs….all of which led to a life of wasted potential, drug addiction, jails, institutions, homelessness and eventually trying to commit suicide on a rainy fall night in 1987.

Midlife Gangster serves as the prequel to how Bullet became “The Extractor,” and captures the true devastation of addiction.  Bullet gives a performance of epic proportions, and delivers a “life transforming show.” Says LA Splash Magazine.

All proceeds will be donated to Teen Adolescent Placements Services. Since 1995 T.A.P.S., a non profit organization, has been assisting families in crises with drug addicted teens and young adults.



Evan “Bullet” James is a leading expert in the field of ‘extreme’ drug intervention services.  With twenty three years of experience in the industry, Bullet is one of the most highly regarded and sought-after drug interventionists in the world. He is also the creator of the “Extreme Crisis Intervention” model.  Founded in 1996, Extreme Intervention specializes in crisis intervention and transport services, missing person investigation and recovery and legal advocacy services. Bullet’s company has also managed some of the most complex, high-profile drug, alcohol, sexual addiction, gang, missing persons, and cult intervention cases in the world, helping over 1200 families both here in the United States and overseas.

As one of America’s preeminent substance abuse counselors, Bullet has helped run the unique non profit organization TAPS (Teen Adolescent Placement Services) for the past twenty years with his partner “Uncle Tony Pallotto.” Bullet received his certification in drug and alcohol counseling from U.C.L.A.’s Chemical Dependency Program and is a certified Speared Raiter Systemic Family Interventionist, trained under the auspices of the prestigious Sierra Tuscon Treatment Facility.

Many desktop publishing packages and web

Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).


Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
