THE DOG LOG is Published!

THE DOG LOG: AN ACCIDENTAL MEMOIR OF YAPPING YORKIES, QUARRELING NEIGHBORS, AND THE UNLIKELY FIRENDSHIPS THAT SAVED MY LIFE, published by Chicago Review Press, 2019

Richard's true story based on his experience with his neighbor and her dogs has been a labor of love (well, mostly...) for over ten years. He's talked about it in standup shows, storytelling shows, and even podcasts through the years. Now it is being published as a fictionalized, comedic memoir, and is available whereever books are sold! See the BUY NOW button in the menu to purchase your copy!

A frustrated man begins a complaint log to the local Sheriff's Dept. about his despised elderly neighbor's barking Yorkshire Terriers, but when she is hospitalized from a fall and no one comes to check on them, he enters their shocking world and comes out a changed man. Based on true events.

It's an epic journey of just 40 feet...

Richard and Lauren will be doing a meet-and-greet signing event at Barnes and Noble / Bookstar Loma Theater in San Diego on November 9th, 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM.

"Bono and The Edge Waiting for Godomino's " featured in the TheTVolution.com's "LOS ANGELES THEATRE - THE BEST OF 2017"!



"Employing Samuel Beckett’s absurdist play Waiting for Godot, Writer/Director Richard Lucas’ stingingly clever and sharply funny Bono and the Edge Waiting for Godomino’s mocked the absurdity of fame and stardom by transposing Beckett’s two tramps to Bono and David Evans of the rock band U2.  Performed to prickly perfection by Lucas, Curt CollierJeff Blumberg and Bruno Oliver."


BOOK READING
