Marc Lucero to Prove GEORGE CARLIN SAVED MY LIFE at Leicester Square Theatre, 17 May
Following stunning reviews and sold out shows at this year's Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival, Marc Lucero (Silver Stand Up of the Year, 2013) brings his new show to Leicester Square Theatre for one night only on Saturday 17th May.
Lucero, now 60, has hit a rich comic seam plundered from his life as a part-time house husband, older dad and generally unconventional neo-pensioner lifestyle.
But now his new one-man show takes a more tragi-comic turn. A heady mix of pathos and bathos, Lucero weaves his tangled and utterly gripping story through a series of twists and turns starting in post-war Home Counties where he was adopted. Lucero takes you on his travels to California in search of his family. He gets more than he bargains for on discovering his past is linked with The Rolling Stones, Las Vegas and Geronimo. Down and out in Nevada legendary stand-up George Carlin becomes his saviour.
"Lucero brings a different comic perspective to a stand-up landscape dominated by twenty and thirty somethings...do yourself a favour and seek him out." Chortle (on Marc Lucero)
"Not many stand ups stop you in your tracks...startling honest stuff which Lucero mines expertly for laughs." Leicester Mercury (On George Carlin Saved My Life)
