LOS ANGELES, CA (August 28, 2018)— Bonafide comedian and actor Scruncho is coming to the Hudson Theater for his “All I Needed Was A Hug” one man show produced by Emmy Award-winning media maven Sherri Shepherd, and Pamela Azmi- Andrew. Hailed by Vibe Magazine as “King of the Underground,” Actor-Comedian-Thought Gangsta SCRUNCHO has mesmerized audiences around the country with his raw brand of street-conscious humor since 1996. Born Anthony McKinley, the self-proclaimed “black sheep of the family” made his unorthodox stage debut when he ran into a comedy club, jumped on stage, and pretended to be a comedian in an attempt to avoid the police who were hot on his heels. To his surprise, he actually got laughs.
Shifting his focus from the ‘hood to Hollywood, Scruncho quickly became known for his energetic, mile-a-second delivery, and a larger-than-life stage persona, transforming the Long Beach native into one of stand-up’s most riveting headliners. His heart-stopping performances are a dizzying display of hilarity, passion, spirituality, and authentic street hustler charisma that prompts audiences to laugh, cry, think, and laugh again. His “thug-like” exterior often betrays the warm, outgoing personality that has endeared him to underground and mainstream audiences alike. Equally adept at dramatic roles, his moving and brutally honest, one-man tour de force ALL I NEEDED WAS A HUG chronicles his journey through the mean streets of Los Angeles as a neglected child–a product of a household steeped in alcohol and poverty–in search of love and acceptance, only to find the well-worn path into prison. God and a microphone would prove to be his salvation and entrée into a successful career in entertainment.
WHEN: Thursday-September 6th through Sunday-September 9th.
WHERE: Hudson Theater, 6539 Santa Monica Boulevard, Hollywood, CA, 90038. Doors Open: 7:00pm (shows start promptly 8:00pm, Sun Matinee at 3:00pm).
