NYC comedian Lucie Pohl, creator of the Fringe 2014 smash hit Hi, Hitler, is back this summer with Cry Me A Liver, her new “soul-twerking character comedy joyride”. In it, we meet a fame obsessed Sia wannabe, a philosophising Brooklyn bum, Putin’s sperm, a German mind and body healer with a serious crush on Benicio del Toro, and more.
AAA caught up with Lucie earlier this week for chat.
