Reduced Shakespeare Company: "The Complete History of Comedy (abridged)"
They've skewered history, the Bible, and the world's most celebrated playwright. Now, the Reduced Shakespeare Company tackles the subject it was born to reduce. From the high-brow to the low, The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) covers comedy through the ages, from Aristophanes and Shakespeare and Moliere (Is Moliere funny? Why not?) to Vaudeville and Charlie Chaplin to The Daily Show and Anthony Weiner.
Note: Strobe lights will be used during this performance.
"Spectacular! (A) terrific rapid-fire, laugh-out-loud performance! A laugh-riot!"
