The production is enjoying an open ended run @ The Venus Cabaret Theater (@ Mercury Theater). Must have Comedy chops but stand up experience not necessary.

I’M NOT A COMEDIAN… I’M LENNY BRUCE ran for 125 performances in Los Angeles and for 9 months Off Broadway to massive media attention, critical acclaim and dozen upon dozens of rave reviews and just celebrated our 100th Chicago performance.

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.
