LENNY BRUCE IS BACK! Written by and starring Ronnie Marmo, and directed by Tony Award winning actor Joe Mantegna, I’M NOT A COMEDIAN… I’M LENNY BRUCE originally opened in Chicago in 2019. Chris Jones with the Chicago Tribune raved “even the most devoted Bruce fan will leave impressed with Marmo,” and WTTW called the play “brilliant” and “furiously funny” while the Daily Herald called the show, “striking.” This story of the life and early passing of one of the most legendary comedians of all time not only draws from Bruce’s court battles championing the freedom of speech, but includes many of his original comedic bits and insights from his own writings.
