Review from jim rauh

My wife liked it better than I did (I would give it three stars, for her four stars). Regardless, the RCS is an always entertaining/spirited group of performers. We had previously seen All The Great Books which was outstanding. Can't go wrong...continued

Review from Tmcquade

Even though I'm not really a sports fan, I spent a lot of the night laughing and definitely enjoyed the show. My husband - the BIG sports fan - enjoyed it even more and got more of the jokes.

Review from Scott Brown

A solid two hours of laughs, even if you know little or nothing about sports.

The Complete World of Sports (abridged)

by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor

Just in time for Father’s Day comes The Complete World of Sports (abridged). Is bowling really a sport? What about poker or competitive eating? Who invented curling and synchronized swimming and why in the world are they in the Olympics? From the earliest cavemen playing “Neanderthal in the Middle” to your own kid’s soccer practice, the lunacy of sports collides with lunatic wit in a tour-de-farce of physical theatre.
