This is just more of a quick reminder than a review. John Leguizamo’s GHETTO KLOWN debuted on 03.22 and this writer watched it and laughed pretty hard with it. It is still airing across the HBO platforms well into April and at HBOGO as well.
GHETTO KLOWN was taped last November at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, NJ. Leguizamo tells audiences that the show is like therapy and spins a “cautionary tale” that begins with childhood memories, continues through the early days of his acting career, and arrives on the sets of well-known TV series and major motion pictures, while addressing his recurring feelings of self-doubt, negativity and depression.
Adapting his Drama Desk Award-winning one-man stage show, the special leads the audience on a hilarious and touching roller-coaster ride through the highs and lows of his personal and professional life. It features vivid accounts of the colorful characters that have populated his story.
These clips are just a tease. If you haven’t seen the HBO Comedy Special: John Leguizamo’s GHETTO KLOWN it is not too late.
