This one-man show was more of a drama than a stand-up routine. When he came to the stage John said that this was going to his therapy session. That was the first warning that the two hour show, padded with segments of unstage-worthy dancing and short Spanish-language triplets, was going to be a gripe-fest. John used his "get out of jail free" card to allow his anti-Hispanic jokes and N-word-use. John has many chips on his shoulders. He complains: that as an unknown, unbankable actor he didnt get more attention for his minor roles thats why theyre called MINOR roles!; that hes berated for ad-libbing on set but complains when others do the same; that Al Pacino played a Puerto-rican but its okay for John to play an Italian in Summer of Sam; and, that hes never offerred big, artistic movie roles for which he has never shown any aptitude. John, thats the same complaint that every actor in history has had but according to you its because youre Hispanic. You ignore the fact that every sizeable role youve gotten you got BECAUSE youre Hispanic. John, youre a big enough celebrity that you COULD take a low-paying, small-scale, ARTISTICALLY-satisfying role in theater or film that you claim to want. However youd have to check your ego at the door, learn how to work with other people, and not show up for filming while intoxicated.

John Never disappoints. he is hilarious. I laughed the whole time my jaw was hurting.
Loved it! John has shared his true talent in this show. Brings me back to the excitement I felt after seeing Mambo Mouth.
I WAS SO EXCITED TO SEE YET ANOTHER SHOW OF JOHN. LOVE IT, HE BROUGHT THE HOUSE AGAIN. JOHN DONT WAIT TOO LONG TO SEE U AGAIN!! GO SEE GHETTO KLOWN
We were lucky enough to see his pre-Broadway try-out in Chicago a couple of weeks ago and it was fabulous. The first time we have seen JL in person and it was worth the time and travel to Chicago. Im sure he will light up the stage in NYC. Dont miss this!
I know its a bit premature to give the show 5 stars so soon, but Im sure Johnny Legz wont disappoint. Can;t wait to see the show. Go Johnny! Go Johnny!
