Clever, Absorbing, Funny, Edgy, Imaginitive

See it if you like sketch comedy. Not all the sketches worked, but many did. Funny and original work fr the Israeli troupe which strove hard to please

Don't see it if you want a highly polished production. Some audience participation. A bit male-dominated.

Their unique brand of humor is always clever and sure to make anyone laugh without ever being too vulgar or crass. Some of their jokes may not be appropriate for all audi...

for a previous production "These are some of the most talented people I’ve ever had the pleasure to see...One of the things that was so incredible was their laser sharp timing in each skit.
