WHAT'S UP NEXT

In keeping with Upstart Production’s dedication to bringing socially relevant work to new and expanding audiences, Joey Folsom brings Sam Bobrick and Julia Stein's Lenny Bruce is Back to a series of non-traditional venues in Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles before mounting the production at The United Solo Festival in New York. While primarily comedic in design, this one man show profiles one of stand up comedy's most controversial figures who challenged the perceptions of the purpose of comedy and is thought of by many as the satirical equivalent of a martyr, vilified in life and sainted in death for the path he paved for comedians and individuals alike regarding the freedom of speech.
