A "Real Inspector Hound" for the reality TV crowd! Tom Cavanaugh's multi-layered farce based on a true event (seriously) moves quickly relaying the main storyline effectively, but the meat is found in his breaking down the players in the television AND theater food chain. Steven Wollenberg gives a stand-out performance as a hot shot studio exec on one side of the "screen," while avatars for many "types" we know too well sit on the other side, a painful reminder of who we may be seeing at the bar later. ... full review

I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. I chuckled a number of times throughout the show. I enjoyed some of the performances, particularly Marina Palmier. Considering that Fringe shows have low budgets, I thought they did a pretty good job with the costumes and props. I wished I liked the basic premise better.... full review

Unique and fun approach to a reality show satire, a genre not easy to satirize. ... full review

It is tough to create a fresh and funny show about the entertainment biz, but Tom Cavanaugh and his fantastic cast pull off a great show about a show presenting yet another show. Confused? You won't be but you will be doing a lot of laughing at this Fringe "must see". ... full review

Do not waste your time on this show, it reaks of a writer fluffing himself because he is "award-winning?" Which award?... full review

You have to take the ride because you don't know at first what is real and what is play, but then the writer hangs a sign on it! I love SEND UPS and this show is sending everybody up in the entertainment world! Critics won't like this show cause the show calls them out, as unemployed actors giving their opinions and I love that! It's just weird and fun!... full review
