    LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

    A MERCILESS BUT AFFECTIONATE SATIRE OF AN ESPN-TYPE BROADCAST THAT “OWES AS MUCH TO THE INSANITY OF MONTY PYTHON AS TO THE INANITY OF ACTUAL SPORTS PROGRAMS” (BOSTON GLOBE).

    “The merry pranksters of the Reduced Shakespeare Company” (Boston Globe) cover every single sport ever played on every continent in the entire history of the world in under two hours.

    If you’re a sports fan, you’ll like this show. If you’re not a sport fan, you’ll love this show!

    The lunacy of sports collides with lunatic wit in The Complete World of Sports (abridged). From the earliest cavemen playing “Neanderthal in the Middle” to your own kid’s soccer practice, the entire history of athletic competition is celebrated in a tour de farce of physical theater. In the words of one critic, “It’s a triumph of speed, endurance, comic timing, high-scoring wordplay, a sharply satiric game plan and an all-out embrace of sports as fun.”
