Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You enjoy sketch comedy cabaret style. You enjoy topical humor. You need a good laugh after reading or listening to the news.

Don't see it if You don’t like raunchy in your face comedy from a feminist perspective. You watch Faux News, believe it and get angry when it is denigrated Read more

Don't see it if you are a staunch Conservative, misogynist, anti-Feminist, or homophobe, or you prefer casts including men, musicals, elaborate sets, plots

Funny, Great writing, Intelligent, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if you want to see a politically charged variety comedy show. This is not a play or a musical, but 3-5 minute skits. I enjoyed it.

Don't see it if expecting it to be Politically Correct comedy. If you are looking for a plot, this is not the show for you.

Ambitious, Cliched, Disappointing, Quirky

See it if you want to support a group of women who do sometimes-funny skits and songs, many of which are about current events and issues.

Don't see it if off-color or raunchy jokes with inconsistent execution/delivery would ruin your appreciation of the occasional truly funny moments.

Funny, Great singing, Great writing, Hilarious, Raunchy

See it if You are not easily offended by profanity, and don't mind seeing a talented all-female cast exhibit some raunchiness

Don't see it if You are offended by profanity or sexusl innuendo or if you want a lavish production

“Though energetically performed, ‘Broad Comedy’ is uneven and a tad ragged. Goodman's songs are reminiscent of sixties' folk rock with some lyrics jammed uncomfortably into simple melodies-smart, but obvious. There is a lot here to savor, but the pacing is askew and the show needs someone with a distance from the material who can do some nips and tucks and find the right timing for each section of the show so that the performance would appear less frantic.”

"An ensemble production with five game performers...The content is earnest, feminist, topical, and thin...An evening of too many amateurish, if well-intentioned pieces...Generally the songs are better than the skits and much of the sketch comedy feels like fill...This show should thrive on the industrial circuit but it is not meant for a New York audience. That may speak as much to the wealth of polished performance we take for granted as to the rookie quality of much of this material."
