BroadwayWorld

for a previous production “The energy was through the roof…With a run time of about 50 minutes, ‘Happy Karaoke Fun’ Time is exactly what its title says it is: a happy fun time. You'll laugh. You'll clap. You'll probably cheer. You may even tap your foot to the beat of the songs. You'll leave feeling great. And, if you're like me, you'll probably be making plans to incorporate improvised lyrics to karaoke classics into your next party.” Full Review

The Artswire Weekly

for a previous production “Being that this is improv comedy, it’s not really about the plot, it’s how well the team of improv performers weave in and out of situations with comedic flair. Which I’m happy to report they do quite well here…What is especially great is how well the ensemble work together to create dozens of small, super weird characters to keep the audience engaged and laughing…The improvised lyrics are clever, strange, and ridiculous. Which also sums up the evening.” Full Review

See it if you want to see a talented, quickfooted, and creative cast, go with the flow and do great musical improv

Don't see it if you cannot substitute absolute performance quality for on the go ingenuity. Also if stairs are a problem for you, or your bedtime is 10pm...

Also Be forewarned, the intro to the evening when I attended, was done by a... Read more Read less

Funny, Quirky, Overrated, Fluffy, Slaphappy

See it if you want to kill time in a bar and want to have some silly amusement, then this is a good mix of both, w/o expecting much theatrical value.

Don't see it if you're expecting a full-fledged comedy play , or karaoke, or stand up comic. Its a bit of each, and as an improve, it can be a hit or miss.

Clever, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if You want to see a mixed bag of young musical comedy actors improvise a mini-musical from karaoke songs. It's ambitious and fun but slight.

Don't see it if You're looking for a real night at the theatre. This is a fun alternative diversion.

Also This is a fun quick hit if you're a young culture vulture who can't af... Read more Read less

Funny, Must see, Refreshing, Hilarious, Entertaining

See it if you want a good night of comedy. Every show will be different since it is improv, but they had me laughing the whole time. Will go again!

Don't see it if you are looking for a set show. Improv takes you to places you would never expect. I recommend you go with an open mind and enjoy the show.

Also Some actors stand out more than others but as a whole was a great cast... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You want to have fun and you love improvised musicals. All the performers have great voices and acting ability to do improvise.

Don't see it if You love serious performances and new music. The tunes are really familiar to all but the lyrics are improvised. You want to go home early.

Don't see it if You're looking for something family-friendly, it took a fairly raunchy turn pretty quickly and wouldn't be predictably appropriate for kids
