GYWO: Better late than never

So, I said I’d get back with a review on Saturday after checking out Rude Mech’s GYWO Friday night and now it’s Monday. I should know better than to set myself deadlines.

Austinist did a nice recap of the local reviews and one of their own. I wasn’t as put off by the flashbacks as the Austinist kids were, the overhead projector is genius and I agree with Katherine Catmull’s assessment of the show (and not just because she’s my next-door neighbor):

The audience responded with the drunken, desperate laughter of people in a spiraling plane. I left exhilarated.

If you’re already familiar with the strips, go to the show anyway. It didn’t bother me that I already knew many of the lines or scenes. In fact, having people do them live added to them and made them even funnier. And, it probably would’ve busted the budget, but they should’ve had someone dress up as Voltron.

Bottom line: you’ll really be kicking yourself next week if you don’t check it out. The last four shows are this Friday and Saturday, 8pm and 10pm. You’ll probably want to purchase tickets in advance either by phone or online as all performances have been selling out.
