Funny, Clever, Edgy, Relevant, Intelligent

See it if You like Saturday Night Live style comedy with a female perspective. Some land. Some not so much. Some very cliche. Some hystericaly good!!!

Don't see it if You don’t appreciate a woman’s point of view or are easily offended.

Disappointing, Funny, Slow

See it if The shorts were OK, one was very funny. The songs were OK too. You can have a few good laughs.

Don't see it if No story line. Too much politics, Too much about women.

“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."
