    Okay, okay, okay. This is about, um, a roadie, but it is about as perfect a festival show as you can get. Hilarious jokes with props, goofy mixed media, audience participation that had people dancing, clapping, cheering, and singing along, and a forlorn, fastastic, and — yes — skinny hero — who explains life to you through the lens of a rock and roll roadie. Be sure to delight in the rock portraits at the end of the show — and if you’re lucky, you’ll be rechristened with a roadie handle. I have no doubt both Yoyo Ma and Dolly Parton would rate this MF five stars.

    F’ing funny. Just funny. She’s just naturally a funny person and you can’t help but laugh along. The improvised stuff is funny, the bits are funny. Totally enjoyable start to finish. Don’t miss.

    Sir Skinny is nothing short of a comedic character genius. Not only was I incredibly entertained, but I have also never before seen up close such a masterful embodiment of a character. Truly one of a kind!!

    We need more Skinnys in this world. This show rocked, it was hilarious, and heartwarming. I saw it twice and will probably see it again!

    Absolutely don’t miss this – just f’ing funny start to finish. Natural comedian with fun-first attitude – I defy you to sit through this show and not have a memorably good time.
