"Hilarious...witty entertainment...quirky, introspective...wise, funny...Lefkowitz gives every impression that he knows what he's doing." - Washington Post

"Shockingly Good...thoroughly entertaining...Lefkowitz proves a master of the well-chosen word." - Washington City Paper

"Smart, funny, with a gentle streak of hell-fire anger. My kind of guy." - Eric Bogosian

"Lefkowitz is a nimble, witty writer...hilarious...touching...highly-entertaining...combines the comic timing of David Sedaris with the relentless inspection of Spalding Gray, but he is a clone of neither man." - Baltimore Sun

"Terrific...often hilarious and occasionally moving. Lefkowitz transcends the ridiculousness of his own obsessions by acknowledging them and poking merciless fun at them." - Baltimore City Paper

"Move over, Woody Allen...a winning combination of guilelessness and astute observation...hysterical...infectious." - Washington Times

Tickets are $10.
