I can't recall ever enjoying a show as much as Humor Abuse! I'm so glad I caught it before it ended, having heard rave reports from all my friends who've seen it. What a talent!!!

This was an unusual tribute to an unusual childhood and an unusual family, beautifully done and completely entertaining to watch. I am very happy we didn't miss this extraordinary one-man show.

I found that the man clown who was in his own words not funny-humorous and an excellent storyteller. I enjoyed the small acts in the one-man show that reminded me of real-life: taking on too much and failing, going forward toward goals that made...continued

We were very happy with our seats. We loved the pathos of the play. Lorenzo Pisoni's agility and humor carried the show. I would have liked to have learned more about Lorenzo's mother and how she affected his life.

What a talented and loving son! I loved the juggling for people who cannot juggle, and my favorite scene was the staircase and the surprising climax. This wasn't Humor Abuse - it was Humor Amuse!

Give yourself plenty of time as parking is a hassle but the show was wonderful. His physical work was amazing.
