Clever, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you'd love to see someone imitate us, and our addiction to technology, in a hilarious way!

Don't see it if If mild audience participation and/or using physical comedy in place of speech (aka performance art) is not at all your thing.

Also Absolutely hilarious, and though he is mimeing, it's not a typical mim... Read more Read less

Funny, Insightful, Clever, Delightful, Riveting

See it if you have eyes and ears. I laughed often and ahh'ed even more at the wild invention. Saudek is a genius. Perfect length show; so much fun.

Don't see it if you absolutely hate mime...even if you do, Saudek is likely to win you over. And the intimate space means that everyone can see. A treat!

Funny, Clever, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if Our host, by his mere presence & his mimicking our tech addictions, reminds us of our loss of vital human interaction. Fascinating 60 mns.

Don't see it if Mime in a box. Stepping inside his world, he gives "mime" a good name. General seating in a small space downstairs. Solo show. One hr.

Don't see it if You don't like shows that are a tad repetitive at times. Some of the jokes play well with the concept, others get over done.

See it if Creative and surprising. Loved the first half. Wonderful expressions. Fun interactions with the sound effect girl and the audience.
