HOWARD LIEBERMAN, whose 2010 Hollywood Fringe Show, “55 Minutes of Sex, Drugs and Audience Participation” was hailed as a “tour de force” by Paul Birchall in LA Weekly is back in Hollywood with an all new show: “Erotic Jewish Story Improv”.
Howard Lieberman grew up on the North Side of Chicago with a professional tap dancer for a father and a math teacher for a mother, which may explain his wild mood swings. After leaving the wholesome Midwest to find fame and fortune as a corporate attorney in New York City, 20 years and one child later, Howard moved to Republican Stillwater, MN with a New York accent and a jaded sense of humor. Although he makes his living as a headhunter for attorneys, his unique blend of performance art, improv and storytelling has made him a fixture in the Twin Cities performance world. His 2002 Fringe show, Welcome to My Bomb Shelter, received 14 rave reviews and 1 truly scathing review. His 2004 show, When Worlds Collide, although a tad graphic, received only raves and his 2005 show, Dancing Dirty with Lee and Mr Bo was well received by all except for a certain jerk at the Pioneer Press whose initials are DP. His frolic with a masturbatory rat in Tom Cassidy’s 2006 Fringe show, Shut Up Louder, was a comedic tour de force. He was at it again in 2007 co-starring with Loren Niemi and Felix Hampton Brown in the criticaly acclaimed 1967, one of the few shows rated MUST SEE by the Pioneer Press. His 2008 show, DEATH CAMP DIARIES, was one of the most talked about shows in the Fringe earning rave reviews from both on-line reviewers and the Minneapolis Star Tribune, which said the show “…has an unprocessed rawness that makes a strong impact…The effect is chilling…”
