In this merciless but affectionate satire, The Reduced Shakespeare company sets its comic sights on the lunacy of sports.
The result is a tour-de-farce of vaudevillian physical comedy that will delight every non-sports fan in the family.
"It's a deceptively exhaustive tour, its intellectual rigor leavened by silliness of the first degree."
-Variety "A comical analysis of sports' childish side.
[This] parody of E S P N's 'SportsCenter' ... is pitched directly and proudly at the juvenile in sports fans of all ages."
-New York Times "A fast-moving and deeply funny farrago, a neo-vaudevillian sendup that manages to be both merciless and affectionate."
-Boston Globe "Hysterical!
[These] world champs of lampooning reduce sports to its hilarious basics."
-San Jose Mercury News
