(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- Theatre 68 presents I'm Not a Comedian... I'm Lenny Bruce at the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center (NBPAC) January 11-13, 2024 with performances each night at 8:00pm. Written by and Starring critically acclaimed actor Ronnie Marmo, with the blessings of Kitty Bruce (daughter of the late Lenny Bruce), along with the Lenny Bruce Foundation. The production is directed by Tony Award-winning stage and television star, Joe Mantegna.

I'm Not a Comedian... I'm Lenny Bruce chronicles the life and death of the most controversial comedian and undisputed legend of all time…Lenny Bruce. His personal pain, sharply funny social commentary and completely original, freestyle comedy left a lasting impact on today’s poetry, politics, music, film – and of course – comedy. His unwavering commitment to, and passion for, free speech led to numerous obscenity charges and arrests. Bruce fought for freedom of speech all the way to the Supreme Court and died of an accidental overdose in 1966 while out on appeal. Lauded by fans and former friends of Bruce, Marmo’s crowd-shocking portrayal brings the notorious funnyman to life with all the electrifying, insightful, and comedic brilliance as the one and only Lenny Bruce himself.

Lenny’s voice is more relevant now than perhaps ever. The feedback received from the likes of celebrities such as Billy Crystal, Tony Bennett, Patti LuPone, Richard Lewis etc … is that I’m Not A Comedian… I’m Lenny Bruce is the Biggest Smallest Show they’ve ever seen.

Tickets range from $45-$70 and are available for purchase online. This performance lasts approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission. Warning: This production contains explicit language, mature content & brief nudity​​​​​​.

The New Brunswick Performing Arts Center (NBPAC) is located at 11 Livingston Avenue in New Brunswick, New Jersey. It is a transformational project that has propelled New Brunswick’s Downtown Cultural Arts District into the spotlight as the region’s most exciting and dynamic performing arts center.
