This show was like a warm fuzzy. i felt like i was in good hands right off the bat with totally adept performers who know their style and do their ‘thing’, and together, they really complimented each other. A great show to start off my fringe.

Prepare yourself for an hour of intelligent, thought provoking hilarity– poetry, stories, songs, surprising rhythm instruments– the works. This dynamic duo does it with panache. And you even get a chance to sing along. Who could ask for more? It was kind of like the Smothers Brothers with estrogen. Go! You owe it to yourself.

Wow! What a fun show! We went in with zero expectations and left thoroughly impressed with the cleverness of the stories and lyrics. The show is almost two “solo” acts in one. The two performers alternate between storytelling (which are all hilarious) and original songs that are fun and clever (Shitty Angels was our favorite). This show will not disappoint.

Loved “That Shitty Sweater”! Wendy Hopkins and Cynthia Carle are a charming duo, and their back-and-forth storytelling and musical stylings are deeeeeeelightfully fun and engaging, and had me laughing out loud more times than I can count. My only criticism: I WISH IT WERE LONGER.

Loved it! Wendy is a charming, intelligent storyteller and her tales are ridiculously funny and well crafted. Great combo with Cynthia’s delightful and witty songs. This show is a must see!

I loved this!! Mixing 2 things I enjoy. Stories and music! Actually mixing more than that! It was ALL delightful and funny! I actually did LOL the entire way through! Perhaps to the annoyance of the folks sitting in front of me! I love when writing is so well crafted, and these two ladies have that in spades. So great! And wow, it flew by!! Thanks for a great show!

Great show!!! Wendy is one of those chicks who’s called “brilliant” and “genius” so much it sounds casual. But she is. So effortlessly funny & a naturally great storyteller. Cynthia Carle brings it with fun songs. O but o how I enjoyed the symphony of comedy and music, muse it is, indeed! To my very soul. I, so touched my the Meat Man, so tickled by the torrid tales! Brava! Sers, it’s supes great!

Too bad this show closed last night, because it was laugh-out-loud funny, fresh, and extremely inventive. The house was standing room only, for good reason.
