Legendary political satirist and activist Barry Crimmins follows up his special, Whatever Threatens You (filmed at the Lawrence Arts Center in 2016 and directed by Louis C.K.), with a new one-man show. He answers questions, corrects the record and tells the rest of the story from Bobcat Goldthwait’s jaw-dropping documentary, Call Me Lucky. Hilarious, trenchant and brave, Atlas’s Knees brings the audience along with Barry on an emotional and intellectual sojourn that has audiences sobbing with both laughter and, well, sobbing. Come see this expert storyteller use the truths of his own life, unfettered by conventional cowardice, to illuminate a path that is both hopeful, achievable and funny.
