Rick Shapiro is an underground comedy legend.

“Searingly honest, the most transgressive comedian in America today…He’s the toast of New York’s Lower East Side underground scene” – Penthouse Magazine

“sounds like equal parts Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor and Lou Reed. Shapiro is New York’s most lurid funnyman – a real star.” – NY Press

“…an explosive comedic talent, a sort of punk-rock, white Richard Pryor with a literary bent, part Iggy Pop, part Phillip Roth” – New York Observer

“Downtown New York provocateur Rick Shapiro debuts with a CD of hard-edged, uncompromising stand-up comedy. As far from the mainstream as it is, “Unconditional Love” still manages to speak universal truths and expose many of our follies.” – Billboard

“His pointed observations on pop culture are pure brilliance” – TimeOut New York

“Rick Shapiro is a top comedian” – Howard Stern
