ABOUT THE SHOW
Keith Broke His Leg is a semi-autobiographical comedy about 30 Rock star Keith Powell's self discovery when he is suddenly stripped of his ability to be mobile.
After an accident, Keith is forced to see the world in a new way when his friends, his colleagues, and especially his wife don’t make life easy for the incapacitated. What results is a series of visits with the flora and fauna of the the Hollywood comedy world, with most of the actors playing parodies of themselves.
The show features Keith’s off-kilter brand of wit, coupled with some genuinely thoughtful moments. Contemplating race, sex, friendship, marriage, and stereotypes, Keith Broke His Leg is "Louie" with a Los Angeles sensibility; "Curb Your Enthusiasm" with humanity, and “Inside Amy Schumer” with a black dude.
