Reduced Shakespeare Company: The Complete History of Comedy (abridged)
“Stellar shtick. Highly skilled sketch comedy artists.” –The Chicago Tribune
“One of the greatest sustained pieces of physical comedy I’ve ever seen. Buy tickets now!”
“Intellectual vaudeville. They are smart, cheeky clowns.” –The New York Times
This world-renowned three-man comedy troupe takes long, serious subjects and reduces them to short, sharp comedies. They have abbreviated man’s most profound accomplishments, including the works of the Bard, the word of God, and the history of the United States. Now comes the most serious subject of all: Comedy. In this brand new production, the “Bad Boys of Abridgement” will deconstruct the funny and find out what makes people laugh, asking the following question: Are there really only five jokes? Who is funnier: Sigmund Freud or Adam Sandler? Which is the least funny nationality? Which is the most funny? Why did the former try to exterminate the latter?
