BENJAMIN SCHWARTZ certified reviewer June 10, 2024
A swift and snappy political parody with a zany cast of characters that doesn't take itself too seriously, but still reminds us that our government is predominantly filled with a bunch of nepo babies and juvenile over-achievers who will do whatever it takes to get ahead in life. Senator Lionel Humphreys, played by Reid Emmoms, delivers a show-stealing performance, and is entrusted with some of the most poetic dialogue of the play, flowing beautifully as its spoken his smooth southern draw. Fun and fast-paced, this show is a perfect addition into any fringe schedule. ... full review

Drew and Brandon are a creative team to watch in the years to come, being able to transform topics that most people avoid, like politics, into something that not a single audience member can deny relating to at some point in their life. 30 minutes seem to be just the right amount of content and information for the story to feel satisfying while also leaving us enthralled and ready for another 30 minutes if it was to exist. Drew's writing has a voice that doesn't have to work too hard to deliver it's point, but will still make it's point with clever dialogue and original, humorous situations that make the metaphor of what is being commented on effortless to absorb. ... full review

Vote for Tom Ryan is a bitingly funny satire that packs so much into 30 minutes without becoming confusing. Hilarious, genuine performances keep us invested as our "heroes" make the final slog on election night. Between this and What The Chuck?!, political satire is alive and well at Fringe.... full review

This 30 minute comedy show is a must-see for anyone looking for a good laugh at the expense of the banalities of politics, without being a political show at all. ... full review
RYAN LISMAN certified reviewer June 18, 2024
I thought that I had a pretty good idea what this show would be like coming in, knowing many members of the creative team, but I was completely shocked at the directions that it took, and I feel confident in saying that a very large majority of the audience would also feel the same way. I thought that the show was sharp, witty, but also did a good job capturing the flaws in our American political system, really highlighting the absurdity of it through its clever choices of framing.... full review
