It’s time to meet Richard Lett again, for the first time.
Called the Canadian George Carlin, Lett’s standup act is known for being vulgar, acerbic and bombastic. He has become a legend in the touring scene for his brutal takedowns of audience members and his ability to drink the bar dry after, and sometimes during his set.
Sober But Never Clean presents a completely different Richard Lett. He is a changed man, and he lays his soul bare to show us. Gone are the insults and barbs, and in their place are deeply personal stories and honest introspection. Richard Lett has spent his career building a wall between himself and his audience. It takes him one hour to tear it all down.
Between stories, Lett takes a seat at an electric piano and sings songs of what he’s lost and what he’s gained. His gruff persona melts away to gentle melodies of his own devising, and the audience responds to his honesty in kind.
Expect some mature content in this show. It is still Richard Lett, after all. Sober, but never clean.
