Lenny Bruce returns to Cornelia Street this Thursday, Jan. 10th, 6 pm

Lenny Bruce: Dead and Well, 
written and performed by TRP's own Peter Carlaftes, makes an encore appearance due to popular demand at Cornelia Street Cafe this Thursday, Jan. 10 at 6pm. Tickets $12. The show was sold out last time: be sure to get there early for this great piece of work. 
Carlaftes is fantastic as the reincarnation of Lenny Bruce, who has come back from the afterlife to tell the world about what lies ahead in his own inimitable style. And Lenny sure has plenty to talk about. His hilarious afterlife perspective gives him the inside scoop on such things as:
  • Who really killed JFK? The answer is finally revealed--and it will shock you for the rest of your life!
  • The dinosaurs are coming back. "Remember how the dinosaurs disappeared? Nobody knows why. Well, they come back. Nobody knows why." 
  • Cold War II. You think the first Cold War was bad? Brace yourself.
Lenny knows the hierarchy of heaven. And because no one can persecute him, he's  a new man, with a new attitude, and a wealth of new material, that takes its cue from such Lenny classics as Religions, Inc., How Hitler Got Started and To is a Preposition, Come is a Verb.
Peter Carlaftes fully embodies the essence of the comic genius. "Carlaftes is the reincarnation of Lenny Bruce," SF Weekly). Discover a new perspective on Lenny, and a new definition of "what is." See you at Cornelia St. this Thursday.
