The traveling solo show Humor Abuse officially opens at the Mark Taper Forum Sept. 21 following preview performances that began Sept. 17.  



The one-man show starring Lorenzo Pisoni that recounts his experiences growing up in a circus environment runs through Nov. 3. 

Humor Abuse has been performed in various cities including New York, in association with the Manhattan Theatre Club; San Francisco, at the American Conservatory Theatre; Seattle, at the Seattle Repertory Theatre; and Philadelphia, at the Philadelphia Theatre Co.

Pisoni's stage credits include Henry IV, Equus and The Explorers Club. He has performed on screen in "The Adjustment Bureau," "The Good Wife" and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent." 

Humor Abuse replaced the previously scheduled What the Butler Saw, which was postponed to another season due to a scheduling conflict.
