About I'm Not a Comedian... I'm Lenny Bruce
Hot off its critically acclaimed, sold-out Los Angeles and Off-Broadway engagements, the Chicago premiere of "I'm Not a Comedian... I'm Lenny Bruce" is directed by award-winning actor and director Joe Mantegna. Star Ronnie Marmo brilliantly chronicles the life and death of the most controversial comedian of all time.
An undisputed comic legend, Lenny Bruce was one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. His life and work have had an impact on poetry, politics, music, film, and of course, comedy. Bruce’s tempestuous personal and professional life was marked by great passion and great pain. His unwavering commitment to free speech led to numerous obscenity charges and arrests. Lenny fought for freedom of speech all the way to the Supreme Court.
