The Lionel Reunion Tour’s inaugural performance graces the distinguished portals of The Cutting Room. For years Lionel along with his trio Lock ‘n Load peregrinated the Tri-State area charming the throngs with extreme storytelling and tasty bluegrass. From the incipient stages of his entertainment experiment, Lionel took his raconteur passions and love for American indigenous music and forged them together in this nonpareil entertainment delivery system. Lionel is LOTUS (Lionel of the United State). He’s the most dangerous man in media today. The mononymous Lionel is not of this world. Media world. He has no label, category or taxonomy that fits the slightest. He’s an ex-prosecutor, trial lawyer, free speech absolutist, monologist, crypto-vegan, legal analyst and news decoder. Since 1988 he’s been telling the world what no one wants to hear. Home has been WABC, WOR and PIX 11 News. Don’t call him comic or comedian or what he does as standup. Rounding out Lock ‘n Load are the scariest flatpicking guitarist on the planet today, the phenomenal Bob Harris and Bob Sutor, whose top shelf banjo playing is simply jaw-dropping. Newsweek described Lionel as “[a]n intellectual known for his irreverent political and social humor.” The great record producer Jerry Wexler perhaps said it best. “He wears the mantle of Lenny Bruce, with Lenny’s own tropisms: The Oblique, The Irreverent, The Tangential, The Concupiscent, The Polymorphous Perverse, The Arcane, The Numinous. And yet Lionel brings to the table his own savory: A love of the mother tongue and a gonzo vocabulary that puts his logo on all his works, whether talk-show hosting, standup-comic spritzing, or hanging out – with himself a minor art form.” Contains gluten.
