Summary
"In Ghetto Klown, celebrated performer Leguizamo lays bare his early years in blue collar Queens, his salvation through acting and writing, and his colorful career trajectory. He brings us onto the sets of his films opposite stars such as Al Pacino and Patrick Swayze and with directors such as Baz Lurhrmann and Brian De Palma, while also opening up about his offstage life in love and marriage. In this candid memoir, he offers a strong message of moving beyond self-doubt--and beyond the doubters--to claim some happiness. Originally staged on Broadway in 2011, Ghetto Klown won Leguizamo Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards before being adapted into an HBO special. Now, teaming up with artist Christa Cassano, he shares his life story as a vibrant, funny, and moving graphic volume certain to enthrall his fans and expand his audience"--
