About this title

Synopsis:

An uproarious and lacerating meditation on life—and death—by celebrated comedian and actor Denis Leary.
 
Based on the writer-performer’s hit Off-Broadway show, this rapid-fire monologue sends up society and its ills—disease, drugs, crime, junk culture, the recovery movement, pious political correctness, urban life, and above all, our fear of mortality—with wicked satire and insight.
 
“High-octane comedy . . . terribly, angrily funny.”—The New York Times
 
"Absolutely brilliant . . . the real cutting edge of American comedy."—The Boston Globe

Review:

Leary manages to be harsh and hilarious about foibles and situations, stupidity and hypocrisy. No Cure for Cancer is the written version of a series of monologues he wrote while in the United Kingdom. Perhaps the most memorable aspects of the book are the speculation about a story drawn from a supermarket checkout newspaper about a man who lost his penis in an industrial accident; Leary's childhood experience of being shot in the head by his brother with an arrow; and his rants about drugs, the psychoses of New York, and the kind of childhood no one would willingly claim is normal for America, but probably (and frighteningly) is!
