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

“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.”
