I’m Not a Comedian…I’m Lenny Bruce

I’m Not a Comedian…I’m Lenny Bruce

An LA Times's Critic's Choice, this look at the life and battles of the most groundbreaking and impactful comedian of all time, Lenny Bruce, not only draws from his many court battles championing the freedom of speech but also includes many of Bruce's original comedic bits and insights from his own writings, masterfully woven together by the show's creator and star, Ronnie Marmo and expertly directed by Tony Award winning stage actor, film and television star, Joe Mantegna.


"Funny, fierce, tragic, I'm Not A Comedian…I’m Lenny Bruce, beautifully directed by Joe Mantegna with a strong performance by Ronnie Marmo vividly brings to life the comedian we so miss today." - Billy Crystal

"Actor Ronnie Marmo, in the one man exploration of Lenny Bruce, I’m Not a Comedian, I’m Lenny Bruce is a force of volcanic proportions. I was riveted by Ronnie and moved by Bruce’s tragic life. I went home and googled all the players in Lenny Bruce’s life. It had such an impact on me." - Patti Lupone
