The veteran comedian and performance artist John Leguizamo, 55, has been bringing his solo shows to Chicago for decades, beginning with the groundbreaking “Spic-O-Rama” at the old Goodman Studio theater in early 1992. In subsequent years, the Colombian-born Leguizamo either toured or developed such shows as “Mambo Mouth,” “Freak,” “Sexaholix” and “Ghetto Klown” in this city, even as has raised his profile as a Hollywood actor by appearing in such films as “Super Mario Bros.,” “Romeo + Juliet,” “Moulin Rouge” and “Chef.” His latest show, direct from Broadway, is “Latin History for Morons.”
