Winner! New American Comedy Festival Award

Carl and Phil decide that the ladder to success at the post office is missing a few rungs. They know that big money is waiting for people with entrepreneurial spirit and sound business judgement. They have lots of the spirit but little of the judgement and their new gourmet health food restaurant flounders. Zippy's, a popular cross town spot, has been crowded ever since Cy Manamalancia, a notorious mobster, was shot there and that was over twenty years ago. What if someone could get murdered in their restaurant? Flaming Idiots is a contemporary farce which takes place entirely in the restaurant kitchen and requires five doors for slamming.

I was privileged to act as Phil in this incredible show a few years ago at Wetumpka's Depot Theatre. Though there are a few plot holes, the audience doesn't even notice them during the fast-paced action. This play is so fast-paced and hilarious that audiences loved it and laughed themselves silly. One lady actually told me that THIS was her "new favorite show."

I highly recommend it for theatres looking to put on a comedy farce.
