Jeff Leach: A Leach On Society
Energetic gross-out comedy with possibly divisive material
This article is from 2011.
After a promisingly energetic opening, Leach lost momentum due to drunken heckling and had trouble getting the audience onside. His material, dealing mostly with emergent sexuality and humiliating experiences, is divisive and makes for uncomfortable tittering, rather than belly laughs. And he totally lost his crowd in a gross-out finale.
