After 11 years, John Leguizamo is making his way back to our TV screens!

According to NBC Latino, the 49-year-old actor will be taping his comedy routine, Ghetto Klown, on November 16 at the Victoria Theater in New Jersey for an upcoming HBO special.

Ghetto Klown, a semi-autobiographical show about Leguizamo's path to stardom, is based on his memoir Pimps, Hos, Playa Hatas, And All The Rest Of My Hollywood Friends.

This is Leguizamo’s fifth one-man show, all of which were made into HBO specials. The comedian's other specials include Mambo Mouth (1991); Spic-O-Rama (1993); Freak (1998); and Sexaholic…A Love Story (2002).

Ghetto Klown will premiere on HBO next spring!
