Richard Glen Lett presents “Sober But Never Clean Cross Canada Tour”:

This hit one man show, uses stand-up comedy, slam poetry, storytelling and original music to tell legendary comedian Richard Lett's story of recovery from addiction.

Richard Glen Lett delivers a great message wrapped in light and dark humor like a little chocolate hug – a treat to experience.” - Wayne Steer – Fresh Start Recovery Centre, Calgary, AB.

"Lett's timing, tone and delivery were pitch-perfect. He transitioned seamlessly between funny and serious and was as comfortable behind a piano as he was behind a mic stand.”

“ - a good option for those who have struggled with addiction or recovery, know someone who has, or who just have trouble opening up without a drink in their hand. It's also a funny, fresh take on stand-up that transcends the genre. Speaking of stand-up, fans of the genre should definitely appreciate this performance, but the show pulls heartstrings as often as it provokes laughter." – Daniel O.W. Smith – Raise The Hammer
