Send in the "Ghetto Klown."

John Leguizamo gets down with his bad self once again in "Ghetto Klown." The rambunctious solo performer, best known for raunchy one-man explosions such as "Freak," "Mambo Mouth" and "Sexaholix," returns to the stage for this Broadway hit.

The uninhibited tale of Leguizamo's life and times, the show follows the hyperkinetic actor from his boyhood in Queens to his days hobnobbing with stars in Hollywood. As the Emmy winner puts it, the show "is all the things I say to my therapist and my manager, but would never want the general public to know. It's cheaper than a lawsuit and I get to take a bow at the end. It's like WikiLeaks but with no international manhunt."

The solo piece, which had a dry run at Berkeley Rep before heading to Broadway, runs April 26-27 at San Francisco's Orpheum Theatre as part of the SHN Broadway series. 1192 Market St. $40-$95. 888-746-1799. www.shnsf.com
