It started a second run on February 17, 2012 and has already garnered more positive reviews from the New York theater community. Bad Kid was published as a memoir by Harper Perennial in 2015.
His second one-man show, $1800, premiered in New York City in November 2015 and chronicles finding $1800 on the street, his moral dilemma about what to do with it, along with life as a struggling actor in New York and chronic health issues.
