Love, Humiliation
& Karaoke
written and performed by Enzo Lombard

Directed by
W. Kamau Bell
(writer/performer “The W. Kamau Bell Curve”)
June in SF
July in New York City

Enzo really does not want to end up cut into little pieces and deposited on the side of the highway. Yet he’s risking just that by driving 600 miles to meet SanDiegoDavid, a complete stranger he met online. Enzo’s not looking for love, he’s just way behind on an assignment for his Berkeley psychic class. Even though “David” could very well be a serial murderer, to Enzo he’s still safe. Safe because David is a non-contender for dating, having three out of five of Enzo's rigid non-negotiables. To be safer still, Enzo’s meeting him at a Del Taco parking lot. But when Enzo arrives, the guy’s car is left parked across the entryway making it impossible for anyone to get in or out. David’s psycho potential has just gone through the roof. Who does that? What has Enzo gotten himself into? This is humiliating, and even worse, totally un-psychic.

With inspired direction by W. Kamau Bell, Enzo Lombard has transformed the questionable choices and troubling circumstances that entangle his life into one of the season’s sharpest solo comedy’s. Enzo embodies ten different characters in seven fast-paced scenes, each set in a different city. This past fall “Love, Humiliation & Karaoke” opened at Stage Werx Theatre, the grotto-like, subterranean theater near Union Square, and immediately attracted an enthusiastic following. Which is the reason it extended into the winter. In June, “Love, Humiliation & Karaoke” returns to Stage Werx Theatre for four consecutive Thursdays. In July Enzo takes the show to New York City where it will be featured in the Mid-town Theater Festival.
