Work that humbug out with some holiday laughs! Second City alums and veteran Comedy Central writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort have dreamed up this new twisted version of A Christmas Carol, infused with hilarious improv sketches and zany characters written specifically for its cast of L.A.-based Second City alumni. Scrooge, Tiny Tim, three ridiculous ghosts and a cast of The Second City's funniest alums take the Kirk Douglas stage by storm, as wicked satire, daring improv and a host of guest celebs run rampant throughout the Victorian streets.

I adore this company's work. I believe they are the leading alternative/experimental company in the country right now, as they embrace/incorporate what's very now culturally (irony, absurdity, irreverence) with strong and original presentational and storytelling techniques, like Wooster Group or Mabou Mines did when they first started.
Like those companies, the Rude Mechs' seem to irritate as many as inspire them, and that says everything about how necessary they are in our sad theatre world right now. If I see another predictably average regional theatre show (that includes you, South Coast, and sometimes even the Taper and others) or a lackluster, overpraised fringe mess, I'm going to start a company where theatre's pay US to watch their boring work.
Thanks, Rude Mechs, for inspiring me. And making me laugh harder than a hundred bro-comedy movie messes.
The Rude Mechs' uber-physical, riotously unconventional The Method Gun was a monster hit at the Douglas last season.
Now they're back and bringing the party: I’ve Never Been So Happy -- a transmedia hootenanny centered around a western operetta filled with ballads, heavy metal, opera and R&B!
When a mother ties her son to a mountain lion to make him strong and a father won’t allow his daughter out of the house to protect her virtue, it’s gonna take a Texas-sized, foot stompin’, genre rompin’ sensory assault to bring these star-crossed lovers together.
And if that isn’t enough, smack in the middle is an intermission shindig -- an interactive carnivalesque performance party. Be sure to save room for Texas Trash Bags from Tub's Fine Chili & Fancy Fixin’s and drinks at the saloon with the town gossip on hand to stir the pot and cause a ruckus.
