- JOE RAIOLA - PERFORMS HIS ONE-MAN SHOW "ALMOST OBSCENE " AT THE CINCINNATI PLAYHOUSE IN THE PARKOn February 10, 2003, MAD Magazine Senior Editor, Joe Raiola wages war on the status quo and rants against censorship, "decency", John Ashcroft and God himself, in ALMOST OBSCENE, his new one-man show which premieres at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park in Cincinnati, OH, 7:00 PM.Raiola, best known for his sharp satire and parody featured in the pages of MAD, is already a hit on the lecture circuit, getting rave reviews from around the country in THE JOY OF CENSORSHIP, his fiery defense of the first amendment.In ALMOST OBSCENE he explores related and equally controversial ground.Hilarious, thought provoking, doesn't leave much room for speculation. An enjoyable performance whose subject matter we've heard before, but leaves us feeling stirred and awakened, like a good ol' Italian back of the hand....NYTheatre.comGo to:
