I went to see The Nonsemble and their show was absolutely hilarious… the various skits and audience involvement was so much fun to be a part of. I would love to come back and see more as they mix it up, and hope to in the near future!... full review

The Ham Festival brings you a collection of performance pieces that drop you into experiences both comedic and profound. The show is a like a charcuterie board of micro-fringe performances as you experience dance, competitions, stunts, vulnerable revelations, and character pieces in delicious chunks. Each performer brings a unique element to the group and you can spend the whole car ride home discussing which performer and what piece was your favorite. You have never been so attracted to 7-9 people in your life.... full review

This was a wild show! I've seen many sketch comedy shows, and they have a tendency to blend together perhaps at times playing it safe and going with the general vibe of what a sketch comedy show “is”…this show is the exact opposite of all that. There were many moments when my mouth was a gape because the content was so innovative and unusual. I appreciate how the cast had a total willingness to put themselves out there, both emotionally, and at many points, physically, with some wonderful moments of physical comedy. If you're looking for a sketch comedy show that will consistently surprise you and capture your undivided attention, this is the show for you!... full review

This will be one of the most wonderfully unique experiences you’ll ever have!! So much thought, care and artistry is put into this show from the moment before you step inside the the theater until you leave the theater’s threshold. The Nonsemble’s Month Long Ham festival is one of the best, most ambitious shows in existence! ... full review

Quick moving, absurd, experimental, and dumb in a good way. This troupe collaborates seamlessly and joyfully to make acts about nothing that turn into ... everything? Part clown/part dance/a lot of nonsense. I've seen them a bunch, and I always find myself thinking about them a few days, even a few weeks later, a bit disarmed. They're a little unnerving that way. There's a lot of audience participation, even instigation. We're part of the show. And it's, like, casually queer. Which is nice. I recommend this to get your heart and your head shaken up and to watch artists perform human-ness as if they were really skillful children. That's the best way I can describe it.... full review

Talk about quirky to the ump degree! Very clever short funny scenes played out by young talented troops of players, the announced titles accented by the bell. Standing out was Vince Andrew in the boyfriend meeting his girl friend's Dad, Joey with wet feet and of course, Dean Evans in the valentine's dinner! Also enjoyed Frank and Ian (I believe I have his name right), the blond playing the piano scene and all the many physicalities of the whole Ham Festival Gang! (Sorry, I did go to 4 shows today & can't find my flyer for last names and more names!) ... full review
