Randy, Australia’s most celebrated puppet comedian, teams up with a typewriter for an hour of spoken word and gratuitous arm movements. More…
Randy has played everywhere from Edinburgh to Hong Kong, Galway to Singapore to Sydney, and anywhere in between. Next stop — New York City, Here he will read excerpts from his unpublished novel whilst getting distracted by his own hate filled ramblings.
See it if you want to let your hair down (Randy does...and he's bald). This is one brilliant, expressive puppet. You'll laugh, you'll think.
Don't see it if you want a real show; this is stand-up. Audience participation is weakest part, but it wasn't horribly intrusive. Good escapism.
See it if Based on other reviews, maybe we caught an off show. But this was brutally bad. Jokes failed. Most of the audience left after 30 min.
Don't see it if You are at a matinee or have a half full crowd. It’s a night show requiring a few drinks. This is my worst reviewed show.
See it if you want to see an oddly likable stand-up puppet work the crowd & make you laugh about Hoarders, Hemingway, Harper Lee & the human condition

See it if you think you would like standup done by a puppet.

See it if You love long-form stand-up comedy — and puppets!
Don't see it if You think this is a play or dislike stand-up comedy. If you won’t participate like you’re in a comedy club, it’s not worth going.

Don't see it if You don't like puppetry, Eric Bogosian-like philosophical musing w laughs, audience interaction, talk of veganism, art w profanity.
See it if active participation in give & take with storytelling performance artist in puppet form would involve U & more U bring 2 it more U take away
Don't see it if expect show 2 please U without your own input, not expecting hybrid standup/puppet/theatre/discourse thing, offended by constant obscentiy
See it if You are in the mood for a comedy show hosted by an Australian puppet. A lively audience makes for a better show.
Don't see it if You want a more formal, structured performance. You don't want to take a chance on something that could be very funny or not.
See it if you enjoy comedy shows. This is basically a structured stand up show with a lot of improv and audience participation. Funny and entertaining
Don't see it if you want to see an actual play or assumed puppet meant family friendly. This is not a show for your kids.
See it if You like stream of conscious one man shows cleverly incorporating audience input and social values
Don't see it if The above does not appeal. Minimal stage, minimal puppet, minimal movement. Cerebral Randy.

See it if you liked Avenue Q. A tell-it-like-it-is character. Show has a standup show feel. Audience participation is encouraged :)
Don't see it if you're expecting a traditional theatre experience. Skip if you don't like the 4th wall being broken. It drags a bit in the middle.
See it if you enjoy Dame Edna's repartee w/audience. This is a purple puppet raunchy Dame Edna, with intelligent wit & Sesame Street's Grover energy.
Don't see it if you're not into stand-up comedy. Show scores when he's clever, witty, working off the crowd. Slows down midway, to an almost preachy halt.
See it if You enjoy shows heavy on audience participation, stand up style, puppets, Australian accents
Don't see it if Must have seen it on a bad day. Randy could not connect with the audience and didn’t change tactics. Many left after 45 mins. Uncomfortable
See it if A purple puppet living through an existential crisis in search of its legacy.
