Anxiety Written

Seeing this performance was an amazing experience! This was honest, humorous, and touching. I was floored! I was on the edge of my seat from lights up to lights down. Every moment of gratitude made me tear up. There are several moments where Jessica talked about the people that have helped her on her journey and that recognition was very moving to me.

Nobody's Really Helped Me

A very funny mix of music and self-deprecating humor. If Lanessa only told jokes, or if she only sang songs, that would be a great show. The combination of these talents makes this show unique, engaging, and hilarious. My favorite part of this show was the narrative of Lanessa accepting the fact that she is an artist. She finds the humor in how society treats artists as a profession as well as her days at art school. I found this very honest and relatable. I felt the ending was a little abrupt. I wanted the show to keep going. Lanessa draws you in and eventually you'll want to hear her take on everything.

Modern Romance

I thought this show was a lot of fun. This is a topical, honest, and humorous take on modern dating. I loved that this felt like a slice of life. This show is like people watching at your favorite cafe in Silver Lake and seeing the hilarious drama unfold. This is a highly enjoyable show about several different types of dating scenarios. This show focuses on representation with an intelligent script and a diverse and talented cast.

An Odyssey

A clever and inventive take on The Odyssey. The whole performance was sweet and touching with moments that will make you giggle. Each of the actors looked like they were straight out of a Wes Anderson film, but their performances were so much deeper than that. It was beautiful and engaging start to finish. The performance of Argus stole the show. It was adorable and heartbreaking. I also really loved the set design and use of lighting.

I saw a snippet of this show at Fringe Cabaret and knew I had to see the rest of it! I was blown away with how weird this show is in the best way possible. Terra is a captivating performer. At times I didn't know where the show was heading and I loved it all. I loved how stream of conscious and absurd the whole performance was. There were so many twists and turns. It was so engaging. The backing tracks are very well produced, but I preferred the moments when it was just voice. Her voice is amazing and powerful.

A Beast/A Burden

A compelling behind the scenes glimpse of a performance artist. This made me want to go out and learn more about Chris Burden. I loved how they showed how the close relationships around the artist were affected as his art became more provocative. I loved how they showed Chris's sense of humor as his pieces became more and more dangerous. I also loved the shifting perspectives in how different characters remembered and reacted to some of the events.

The People VS Hell Kross

Great sketch comedy actors that are also a great heavy metal band! The entire show was fun. Their attention to detail was unbelievable. Somebody give them millions of dollars to turn this into a movie already! My favorite part of the show was Nick Gligor as the attorney. Everything he did was hilarious. He was perfect as the bumbling lawyer that's in way over his head.

Alexa, Turn Off Heartbreak

A mix between standup, sketch, and storytelling. Two brilliant comedians share their stories of past relationships and how they dug themselves out of them. It's honest, relatable, and hysterical. My favorite moments were when Tara and Sasha broke the fourth wall. They effortlessly created an environment where everyone was on board with hearing about the embarrassing and painful aspects of heartbreak, and then letting everyone laugh at the shared misery.

Yellow Wallpaper

An inventive approach to a psychological thriller. The strong performance from the lead actress and the animation kept the show engaging and brought it to a whole new level. At times I thought the scenes were a little repetitive, but I think that was to highlight the feeling of isolation and depression of the main character. The acting was excellent. The animation was well-done. I thought the ending was a little abrupt, but overall I thought the play was great.

Movin' On Up

An interesting debate on our purpose/objective in life. I appreciated how they snuck in a Devo lyric, and how it really summed up the play for me: “Freedom of choice is what you got. Freedom from choice is what you want.” This is full of clever, witty dialogue and strong performances from the entire cast.

LADY FARTS

This show was amazing! I loved every bit of it! The way they handled their insecurities and heavier topics, but still maintained a fun and silly show was very impressive. I loved how they blended insecure and embarrassing moments with very silly humor. The chemistry between these comedians was unbelievable. I think this might just be a mistake, but the site says the show is 30min, but it was actually an hour. Make sure you plan accordingly.

DRUNK BIBLE STORIES

A hilarious, bawdy, vulgar, and honest take on Bible stories that you thought you knew. It was like hanging out with your loudest and funniest friends as they reminisce about their religious upbringings and drunkenly examine the weirdest parts of the Bible. The chemistry that the hosts had was amazing. Each of them had a different personality that complimented each other. Drunkards and Dragons are definitely a talented improv group, but I could've listened to the hosts riff on Bible stories for the entire show.

The Universe (101)

Fantastic show. Physical humor, string theory, lemons... what more could you want? A real-life clown and a real-life mentalist explain the complexities of Schrodinger, string theory, and time travel. And they know way more than you might expect. Some of the slapstick physicality made me gasp. I didn't expect it and I loved it. The performers pack so much into an hour, I wish they could have held on to some of the more touching moments and let them breath a little bit more.
