John Leguizamo applies his ‘Ghetto Klown’ makeup for Broadway

by Jesse North

John Leguizamo just can’t stop talking about himself. The outrageous actor is returning to Broadway in February in his fifth one-man show. Yet unlike his outings in Spic-O-Rama and Sexaholix, his new Ghetto Klown piece will turn the focus from his family and Queens upbringing to the famous Hollywood stars he’s worked with. Impersonations of Robert De Niro and Harrison Ford will provide what Leguizamo promises to be a no-holds-barred look into the goings on of the movie star world.

At a press conference last week for Ghetto Klown, Leguizamo spoke about contributing to mainstream Latino entertainment, why now is the right time for him to bring the show to Broadway, and what audiences can expect from his fifth solo show. Check out the video below.
