John Leguizamo's GHETTO KLOWN will premiere on Saturday, March 22 at 10:00 p.m. EST on HBO. Below, get a sneak peek at Leguizamo's one-man stage show - a hilarious and vivid rollercoaster through his personal & professional life.

The show is the comedian's fifth one-man production to become an HBO special, including Mambo Mouth (1991); Spic-O-Rama (1993); Freak (1998), for which he won an Emmy Award; and Sexaholic...A Love Story (2002).

Ghetto Klown played in 2002 at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre for a 12 week engagement. The show was conceived and performed by Emmy and Obie Award winner John Leguizamo and directed by Academy Award winner Fisher Stevens.

Ghetto Klown, for which Luguizamo received a Drama Desk Award is the next chapter in John Leguizamo's popular personal and professional story. It is his fifth one man play, his third on Broadway, and follows in the uninhibited tradition of his Mambo Mouth, Spic-O-Rama, Freak, and Sexaholix...a Love Story. In Leguizamo's trademark style, the piece explodes with energy, heating up the stage with vivid accounts of the colorful characters who have populated his life. He takes audiences from his adolescent memories in Queens to the early days of his acting career and on to the sets of major motion pictures and his roles opposite some of Hollywood's biggest stars.

Leguizamo explained, "Ghetto Klown is all the things I say to my therapist and my manager, but would NEVER want the general public to know. It's cheaper than a lawsuit and I get to take a bow at the end. It's like Wikileaks but with no international manhunt. Yet."
