Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

Written and Directed by Joshua Will. Workshopped and Performed by Jeffrey Cloninger, Dennis Curley, Eriq Nelson, Jim Robinson, Joshua Will

The company that brought you Department of Redundancy Department andPush Button Get Bacon brings you a new satirical comedy that dares to ask:

Do we need 27 different varieties of Oreos?  Do we long for change yet fearsomething new?  Is it okay to play with your Tasseled Wobbegong?  It's nice to have choices, but too many options can make decision making pure comedy hell.

Online medical diagnoses, fast food value menus, presidential elections, homophones ... just a few of the reasons Why We Can't Have Nice Things. 

Caveat Emptor?  Hardly. The cast features comedic favorites from The Brave New Workshop, Tony 'n' Tina's Wedding and the Costco Gold-Star Membership Club.  So, if you're someone who doesn't like "funny, clever, sketch comedy, perhaps like what Saturday Night Live is supposed to be" (Cherry and Spoon), you'll have to deal with that analysis paralysis on your own because they're not psychologists (well, one of them is).
