"...razor-sharp wit and comedy that somehow smacks of equal parts dazzling intelligence and brainlessness"

Imagine the strangest place you've ever been, and then take mushrooms, you'll at least begin getting close to outrageously oddball and massively entertaining show of Dr Professor Neal Portenza's Catchy Show Title.

The scattered trainwreck of a production is bombarded with random interjections, interactions and improvisation — all performed with razor-sharp wit and comedy that somehow smacks of equal parts dazzling intelligence and brainlessness. Nobody in the audience is safe from the stupidity, and the Professor uses it brilliantly to create a riotous evening that is definitely one of the gems of this year's festival.
