BOB LEGGETT certified reviewer June 10, 2013
Wasn't quite sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. The cast is quite good and present the material well. I really enjoyed the visualization of trying to mount a production of a classic musical . . . in a strip club. Brilliant.... full review

There's at least one weird family in every neighborhood. This show tells you all their secrets. Your jaw will drop. Then you'll laugh yourself silly, as you throw "money" at half naked girls.... full review

At last. So many of the unanswered questions from part 1 finally addressed. Thank you sir. Thank you. You will see (in no particular order) incest, yelling, pregnant dancers, penises, lap dancing, perhaps some balls, but definitely some boobs. Stand outs in the cast include Katherine Aquino, for what might be the most awkward exotic dance in the history of theatre, and Karl Wade as the hapless imbecilic not so lovable looser still trying to win the affection of his girlfriend away from her father. Oddly enough this show does have a lot in common Commedia dell'Arte and our poor fool lead is similar to Pierrot or Pedrolino. The moon faced long suffering dreamer. So for a modern take on the bawdy classics of yesteryear check out You mak... full review

I'd heard amazing things about how funny Episode 1 was, so maybe I went in with my expectations too high. There were certainly funny moments, but not killer. Small-ish audience didn't help. With this talented ensemble, they mght have been able to get the ball rolling more with a bigger house. ... full review

Interesting staging of what should be a sitcom script onstage - complete with wacky Kentucky Fried Movie style comercials. I thought this piece had potential, but may do better being on T.V. than onstage. The laugh track cut in and out, creating a jolting experience of canned laughter without any response from the audience, till eventually there was no laugh track at all. In essence I liked the humor, but I think it got a little overplayed, all sex, incest, and gay jokes, all the time, with very little attention to character or consistant storyline. ... full review

I want to be clear that this is not because I can't "handle" incest jokes, homophobic jokes, or anti-Semitic jokes. It's because none of them are funny. Here's an example of a Roger Mathey zinger: "Fuck you faggot." If you don't find that funny the first time, maybe the 50th. Let's not forget the Jewish character (wearing a clown wig and yarmulke) who keeps threatening to sue people- how delightfully Jewish. Roger Mathey's script is Godawful. Roger Mathey's direction is Godawful. Roger Mathey's cast is Godawful. This is in contention for not only the worst show I've seen at Fringe, but the worst show I've seen in my life. full review
