The New York Times calls Tom X. Chao "a dryly funny downtown comedian." Here are some of his not-so-dry short comedies! Angry nun throttles insensitive fusion bassist! Crazed tourist loves San Francisco indiscriminately! Police psychic and office manager solve mysteries while arguing about lunch! "Chao's a funny, sarcastic, dry urban hipster. The show is a fine collection of weirdness that isn't getting the crowds it needs and deserves." "[Chao] offers up a surreal, sophisticated, but decidedly dyspeptic kind of humour here. Imagine Monty Python after an especially bitter divorce. . . . Co-performer Erin A. Leahy, who performs the titular 'dramatic exercise,' mitigates Chao's dark presence like sweet cream in coffee." --Winnipeg Free Press "Chao is a funny man. . . . Fresh-faced Erin A. Leahy is a perfect foil, and Chao's drollness and dark, hip sketches are smart and subversive . . . " --Uptown (Winnipeg)
