This high-energy, irreverent, darkly-comedic piece is physical comedy at its best. It takes the patriarchy, police violence, sexual assault and even a bit of the current presidential race to their limits, showing them at their grotesque best. Not for the faint-of-heart, but for those with a touch of the ruthless in their humor, this show is a four course meal. ... full review

The violence is full-blooded and extreme, and if you find yourself offended by the onstage mayhem, you’ve clearly come to the wrong place.... full review

Look, I'll be honest. I'm not a big Punch and Judy fan. Never much cared for the puppets or their ongoing feuds and violence and nonsense. Never much got it, cared for it, understood why kids were ever riveted by it. So when I say this show had me GLUED TO MY SEAT--you should understood how BLOODY DAMN GOOD it is. And bloody is EXACTLY the right word to use here. Some reviews I've seen for this show suggest a lack of blood. I disagree--I think there's quite a bit of blood. It's just tastefully and artfully done to create the exact amount of excess needed to get the point across. Is it buckets like a Saw movie? Of course not--but that kind of blood never has an impact anyway. A bat beaten over and over and coming up covered in gore, howeve... full review

This show relies heavily on physical comedy and comedic timing to work, and boy, does it sure have both. And a lot of it. I saw a preview, and it was tight. I was crying so hard from laughing. I cannot express how brilliant this show is. It's very low-brow humor, but it finds its sophistication within that humor. Highly recommended, but when I say it's for "adults only," I mean that sincerely. This show is very un-politically correct, but I love it even more because of it. Whatever you do, DO NOT miss this show. Holy...wow!... full review

Go see it! It's the perfect type of show that plays well at the fringe festival. Fun, short, and a reminder of what theater and performance truly can be!... full review

This show is nuts. Barely a drop of blood is spilled on the stage but I dare you to find a more violent, offensive, and down-right obscene show at the Fringe. Just when you think they've taken it as far as they can go, they take it further. This is a miraculously detailed work of art about probably the worst character who's ever existed on stage. Thankfully, the evil is wrapped up in a bright package of big laughs. ... full review

Can a sex addict find love?

A 3410 m 5735682

An old-fashioned musical about sexual obsession. John uses sex to seek love and connection. Marty uses alcohol to escape his pain. They try to build a life as their demons and guardian angels battle: lust, booze and despair vs. recovery and hope.

Wednesdays 3pm-6pm!
