I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time! This show whisks you away from reality and plops you into this crazy Wild West town full of heroes and villains and good humor. ... full review

LMAO! A wonderful, quirky, ORIGINAL, hilarious, evening. This is why there’s nothing quite like live theatre. Audience participation in the most non-threatening way. Surprises at every turn. Get your tix early. Not to be missed!... full review

This was a fun show with good old-fashioned physical humor and some fantastic use of audience participation! Tight direction, great music, wonderful costumes and a simple but very effective set that transports you right into the Wild West.... full review

This show was a wild… wild west ride! Usually, a show has only 1 or 2 stand-out actors, but this show the entire cast was fantastic. The audience participation and improve was so good – I was literally on the edge of my seat. And then, just when you think you're witnessing a typical Western-style showdown… there’s a twist! I highly recommend stopping by the Dusty Spur for a highly entertaining show.... full review

Four Clowns has done it again. A wild romp through Western tropes, this show is a powerhouse comedy with a whole lot of heart. I couldn't stop laughing! If you haven't seen Shakedown, you're really missing out.... full review
MARILYN MINEO certified reviewer June 17, 2019
Four Clowns gives another fantastic production at this year’s Fringe! The story is set in Western Times, with your quintessential Hero in White and Villain in Black. A perfectly cast ensemble invites us into this Lil town where the Dusty Spur Saloon is at risk. Who will save the day? Some music, dance, and a plethora of laughs made 50mins fly by. A definite must-see for a feel-good theatre experience!... full review

Show is fantastic. When one perfomance can make you laugh till you cry AND make you question your kinks, you know it was worth it. ... full review

A comedic delight! Be prepared to leave the theater laughing & singing and then probably still reliving moments from the show days later...seriously a lot of fun. Bring a bunch of friends & laugh the night away!... full review

When it comes to experiencing theatre that is immersive, interactive and all-around entertaining, Shakedown at the Dusty Spur! makes a small black box theater in the middle of Los Angeles feel like the center of a classic western comedy through the immense commitment, dedication and talent of the performers: Elisabeth Hower, Liz Morgan, Turner Frankosky, Benji Kaufman, Tommy Fleming and Jason Poston along with the costume design of Erin Colleran and the artistic direction from Joe Desoto. It was hands-down the most fun I've had watching a show in years and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something original, immersive and laugh-out-loud funny. ... full review

Jessie's Messy Mind

A "crazy" solo show that makes a mental difference. Jessie is an artist with schizo-affective whose show is a refreshing, humorous look into the heart of mental difference. You'll either leave enlightened or simply lightened up!

Have you locked your heart, Elder?

Elder P. happily accepted the call to serve a Mormon mission in Sweden. He promised to lay aside all personal relationships for that entire time, accepting instead the constant scrutiny of a 24/7 working missionary companion. Then *she* showed up…
