Time Out says

Returning to the Venus Cabaret Theater at the Mercury Theater, playwright and actor Ronnie Marmo steps into the shoes (and disheveled suit) of boundary-breaking comedian Lenny Bruce. Produced in partnership with Bruce’s daughter Kitty Bruce, the one-man show finds Marmo replicating sections of Bruce's act while weaving the narrative of the stand-up's life. You'll learn about Bruce's arrests on charges of obscenity and his fight for freedom a speech during an era when profane observations were taboo. Throughout “I’m Not A Comedian… I’m Lenny Bruce,” Marmo channels Bruce's rebelious spirit, celebrating the freedoms that the comedian fought for through a show that reckons with his struggles.
