Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Masterful, Great acting

See it if you want some great physical comedy and miming; want something kinda weird, yet fun and entertaining

Don't see it if you want dialogue; a traditional straight play; not interested in a piece about society's obsession with technology Read more

For a previous production

"'beep boop,' Richard Saudek's hour-long sad-sack romp through modern man's constant love/hate bout with technology, is at HERE, the avant-garde arts center in SoHo. Its deft combination of mime, music, audio-visual effects and-yes-modern technology is worth a visit to this very active performance space, if for nothing else than to see Saudek disappear into his laptop."

For a previous production

“This multimedia-saturated, fast-paced clowning show is a hilarious yet ultimately poignant exploration of loneliness in this technology-obsessed world...A funhouse mirror that exaggerates...A creative and relentless parody...It dazzles with its ingenious creativity, presents a relevant issue, and at the same time, includes an element of hope...Truly one of the most entertaining and thought-provoking pieces I've seen in a long time.”

For a previous production

"What I loved about the experience spending time with Robert’s creations, was that it touched on many levels of the human experience...This mime is not alone: Partnering with his indomitable foley artist (Nora Kaye), who is as much an integral part of the show as anything else, even the goldfish, this wonderful performance could not have been so beautifully carried out without the creative people supporting the production and contributing their enormous audio and visual talents."

For a previous production

"Amid brilliant physical clowning and laser specific silent action is a pervasive sense of loneliness away from the devices...Saudek is ablaze with unfailing energy and specificity. His expressiveness is unparalleled, and each movement is curated to optimal effect. 'beep boop' is simultaneously a celebration and indictment of our relationship to our devices."

For a previous production

“A brilliant display of mime and clown craft...Only on two occasions did I feel lost as to precisely what was being communicated...What could use a little work is the drama, specifically around the middle part...Saudek digresses more than once from the central storyline...That said, ‘beep boop’ is a charming invention, and Saudek a delight to watch as he uses his body, his face, and his hands to create a little universe that is lovely and funny and touching and a little bit sad."

For a previous production

“While Saudek refrains from speaking, apart from ‘beep boop’, his body is a splendid storyteller; he is a crackerjack physical performer, displaying traits and business that call to mind other clowns, comedians and cartoon characters...For a wordless script, no finer points could have been put onto paper...Will ‘Beep Boop’ change the world? Not likely. Will it make you laugh out loud and think twice next time you text? Without a doubt.”
