North Coast Repertory Theatre presents Jake Broder's show about Lord Buckley, one of the most influential comedians of the 20th century. More…
Following runs in London and Los Angeles, Jake Broder returns to NYC with his salute to counterculture icon Lord Buckley. The largely forgotten comedian of the 1940s and '50s reportedly inspired many entertainers including Robin Williams, Johnny Depp, Whoopi Goldberg, George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce, and Bob Dylan. In 'His Royal Hipness Lord Buckley,' Broder and his jazz trio recreate a Buckley performance in a swirling mix of comedy, bebop, and cabaret.
See it if You are a particular fan of Lord Buckley. The musical interludes were good.
Don't see it if The performer is talented but I never felt a connection to him. He was in his own world. He ranted and raved and made me uncomfortable.
See it if You want to experience "hip" talking & writing. Jazz trio was talented as was Lord Buckley, but...
Don't see it if You don't like cabaret, and don't relate to an archaic way of talking "jazzy."
See it if You enjoy cabaret style venue, decent jazz trio and well performed one man show with a few laughs
Don't see it if This is a dull show. Interesting idea but doesn't work. Hipster dialogue & Buckley character interesting at 1st but gets boring
