Don't Miss The Critically Acclaimed One Man Show
Fresh from wowing critics and audiences alike in Los Angeles and Off-Broadway, I'm Not A Comedian... I'm Lenny Bruce makes its hotly anticipated Windy City debut at the Royal George Theatre Chicago this fall, playing right through until January 2020. Brought to life by award-winning director Joe Matnegna and actor Ronnie Marmo, the one-man tour-de-force chronicles the life and times of Lenny Bruce, a comedy legend whose fight for freedom of speech often landed him on the wrong side of the law.
Leaving no stone unturned, the funnyman infused his wry observational humour with satire and social critique, integrating it with politics, religion, sex and blue language. His penchant for poetically vulgar punchlines got him arrested and convicted for obscenity in 1964, as well as banned from several US cities. A man ahead of his time, he was awarded a posthumous pardon in 2003.
