John Leguizamo

Award-Winning Actor & Playwright


John Leguizamo first came to prominence on the lecture circuit touring around the nation’s colleges and stages with his one-man show Ghetto Klown, which traced his life from growing up in Queens, through his avant-garde theater origins in the 1980s, to his feature film career and beyond. In the spirit of this prove nance, Leguizamo is now taking his entire story—the lessons he’s learned, the characters he’s encountered, his passion for education, his struggles against racism and poverty—to audiences around the country with An Evening with John Leguizamo.


A multi-faceted performer and Emmy Award winner, John Leguizamo has established a career that defies categorization. With boundless and visceral creativity, his work in film, theatre, television, and literature covers a variety of genres, continually threatening to create a few of its own.
Leguizamo starred in Barry Levinson’s feature HARRY HAFT alongside Danny DeVito and Ben Foster, as well as in Paramount’s comedy PLAYING WITH FIRE alongside Keegan-Michael Key and John Cena.
John was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series Emmy for his work on Netflix’s WHEN THEY SEE US. He toured his one-man Broadway show LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS, which was turned into a Netflix special as well.
