All in the Timing

Category: 2003-2005


by David Ives
November, 2004

People say comedy is all in the timing, but what about the questions they pose? For example, what would you do if you had an axe stuck in your head? How many years would it take a room full of monkeys to type up Hamlet? How does Phillip Glass buy a loaf of bread? David Ives, with his linguistic pyrotechnics and techniques designed to deliberately disorient the audience, answers these questions and more in this witty and sharp collection of short plays.
