At long last, my improv troupe finally got a review. And it's a great one.
From today's Chronicle:


(read the whole review here...)

Time to find out who Ernie Kovacs is.

That's a fantastic review, and a fun read for those of us who've not yet caught one of your shows (damned NJ)!

My eyes bugged out and I set my drink down dramatically when I read "we were luckier because we like things that blaze and burn, and this was a gig during which Janik was on fire."

That's a fucking nice ass complement to get in the newspaper. Wow.

Big time congrats on the review.

Also, don't keep us waiting, who is Ernis Kovacs? Any relation to Sandy Koufax?

You people don't know who Ernie Kovacs is?!?! He's right up Roy's alley!

Wikipedia

Class Kovacs

He's very reminiscent of Spike Jones and The Bonzo Dog Band.

We've had mentions as featured picks or whatever in the listings, but never a review. Crazy, huh?

Brenner's love of comics has him serving out justice all over this city.

Wes left the troupe about a month ago due to creative differences.
