Boston audiences will have the chance to experience a performance that’s unlike anything they’ve seen before when BROAD COMEDY, a unique theatrical experience, plays at the Stuart Street Playhouse this March! Winner of Best of Vancouver Fringe Fest 2005, it’s Jon Stewart meets “Saturday Night Live” meets The Vagina Monologues.
They’re savvy, irreverent, and they’re probably being followed by Karl Rove in a big black Hummer. These are the women who skewer the Bush White House with the crowd-pleasing favorite: “The United States Extreme Right Wing Cheerleading Squad.” Their newest hit lampoons the Teen Abstinence Movement: “I’m Saving My Hymen For Jesus.”
In BROAD COMEDY, nothing is sacred, except a bright and unflinching look at politicos, women, men, fertilization, corporate shenanigans, and the real desperate housewives of America. Their spicy gumbo of sketches and up-to-the-news-cycle musical numbers include high energy bits like: “The Active Egg” featuring a giant ovum interviewing several sperm for the job, “Russian Immigrant Barbie,” and “Oral Exam,” which finds four mothers on a park bench in deep debate about the nuances of oral sex and their search for a female vocabulary for the woman’s receiving end of this much appreciated procedure.
