In association with John Legend, Get Lifted Film Company, Mike Jackson, The Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, Beth Hubbard, The Private Theatre, Eric Falkenstein, SimonSays Entertainment, Jamie Cesa and Jana Babatunde-Bey.

Turn Me Loose is generously sponsored by Beth Newburger Schwartz and Dr. Donald Wallace JonesDr. Betty Jean Tolbert Jones and Tracey Tolbert Jones.

This intimate and no-holds-barred drama chronicles Dick Gregory’s 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” (The New York Times), Turn Me Looseis an exuberant and raw tribute to Gregory’s life as a civil rights activist, comic genius and unapologetic provocateur.

See how Dick Gregory’s son feels about the play….

 

John Legend and the Will & Jada Smith Family Foundation present a new comedic drama about the extraordinary and explosive life of Dick Gregory –  starring Edwin Lee Gibson – that shines a light on the first Black comedian to  expose white audiences to racial comedy. Gregory was singled out by President Obama as one of his all-time favorite comedians.

Dick Gregory was a strong advocate for DC statehood.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Statehood NOW Foundation.
