What I liked

The School of Night has created a live action version of “Punch and Judy” that commits all the familiar over-the-top acts of violence using real human beings – and very talented ones at that. Cirque du Soleil clown performer Jimmy Slonina leads a game cast through a series of clubbings, sword fights, sexual hijinks, fistfights, chainsaw shenanigans, wrestling, shootings and other good dirty fun. It’s probably the most rambunctious show you can catch in this year’s line up! This is so politically incorrect, you may be stunned at just how far these performers take the wackiness. You will laugh, but you might feel a little bad about it.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

If you like your laughs slightly naughty and your physical hijinks on the violent, deadly side… this show is for you! Leave the kids at home!
