In Love Humiliation & Karaoke, Enzo Lombard tells a lovely story about riding the bus near the Civic Center farmers market. He watches one man beat another with a sack of potatoes. He watches a woman try to board with a live chicken. (The chicken is denied entry, so she angrily wrings its neck, because then its just meat occasionally spasming meat.) Lombards classic closer: And I thought about the fucked up things Id seen in the space of just two or three hours, and I thought to myself -- pause, slowly turn to audience -- I could totally live here. Then he sings some Air Supply. Its a fantastic show, which you might already know: Its finishing up a run at Shelton Theater after a run in NYC after a run in S.F. Tonight, Lombard performs an excerpt at City Solo, a series featuring a rotating cast of Bay Area solo stars rolling out bits from their shows. Joining him is series producer Thao P. Nguyen with Fortunate Daughter, Caitlin Gill with The Mental Audit, and Sarita Ocon with Compromise.
Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: April 4. Continues through April 18, 2010
