Turn Me Loose
This intimate and no-holds-barred drama chronicles Dick Gregorys rise as the first Black comedian to expose audiences to racial comedy. His comedy spared no one including politicians, celebrities and the white supremacists who were part of his regular audience. In confronting bigotry head-on with biting humor and charm, Gregory turned his activism into an art form, risking his own safety at each performance. Scorchingly funny and brilliant (New York Times), Turn Me Loose is an exuberant and raw tribute to Gregorys life as a civil rights activist, comic genius and unapologetic provocateur.
