John Leguizamo talks 'Ghetto Klown,' the connections between comedy and performance art and more




John Leguizamo has been in many movies, often playing Latino gangsters (as in Carlito's Way), but he hasn't made a lot of friends in Hollywood with his new show, Ghetto Klown, which is all about show business. In it, he dishes on the likes of Al Pacino, Sean Penn and Patrick Swayze, and offers scathing portrayals of Steven Seagal, Kurt Russell and director Brian De Palma.

"This is even gutsier than Sexaholix," Leguizamo said recently. "I'm talking about stuff that can hurt my career."

Leguizamo's Ghetto Klown is 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Straz Center in Tampa. Tickets start at $32.50. Click here.
