Ambitious, Clever, Funny, Raunchy, Over the top

See it if You enjoy absurdist comedy, especially with its roots in improve.

Don't see it if You want a serious show or even serious comedy. This is silly and it is improvised...really well in my opinion.

It's commedia!, Bawdy/raunchy, Slapstick humor, Talented physicalhumor cast, Works up a froth

See it if Commedia Style, slapstick humor, relentless cast, masks, scatology, secret improv-ed endings, audience participation make you happy

Don't see it if dick jokes, pratfalls, bordellos, master/servant relationships, masks, audience participation, would make you squirm

Entertaining, Comedia del arte, Funny, Clever

See it if you enjoy comedia del arte, or updates of traditional forms.

Funny, Short and sweet, Occasionally raunchy, Partly improvised, Not a must-see but good cheap fun

See it if you like your shows witty and quick (about an hour), and especially if you like having the option of bringing a cocktail in with you.

Don't see it if if you don't like comedy club/bar-like venues or partially improvised scenarios with performers who don't shy away from using "blue humor."

Raunchy, Silly

See it if This is classic commedia dell'arte, brimming w bawdy, hip-thrusts and standard characters: licentious old man, young lovers, cheeky servants

Don't see it if ribald humor and prat-fall comedy is not your thing.

Theatre is Easy
October 31st, 2017

“It’s offensive and smutty, but somehow the masks and this cast’s unapologetic performances make it all fine to laugh at...The Department of Fools are fantastic improvisers. It’s the kind of show you want to see twice because of how much must change from one night to the next...I really appreciate how no plotline or rehearsed bit is too precious for these folks; their goal is to make you laugh. And in this, they are crafty, mischievous, and simply fun to watch.”
