“Fly, You Fools!” tells the story of the movie ‘Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring’ through live action, shot-for-shot parody using only three actors and a musician/foley artist.
Throw shadow puppetry and a make-shift wind-machine in to the mix, and you have the stage set for a show that does for parody theatre what Peter Jackson did for fantasy films. Throughout the laughs, there is also a love and reverence for the material being lampooned. Jokes made at the expense of the film are sometimes cutting, but are always playful in a way that only fans know how to be. The laughs are ultimately on the troupe of comics as they valiantly recreate million dollar special effects and camera editing with dollar-store props, a microphone and mime.
LAFF Shows present this acclaimed comedy created and written by Recent Cutbacks.
