Celebrating the complicated, no-holds-barred life of a performer, Pisoni shows off the tricks of the trade he learned from his father, Pickle cofounder Larry Pisoni. A hilarious and heartfelt event that will delight audiences of all ages, Humor Abusedazzles with unforgettable stories and mesmerizing routines—all performed by the "one-man whirlwind" (WOR Radio) Lorenzo Pisoni.
