Don't take our word for it.....

 Awkward Face achieved a rhythm that's virtually

unattainable in a free-associative universe. Chalk it

up to chemistry, or the talents of a few ultra-malleable

improvisers. They've taken liberties with the form,

while turning it into a discipline.

(East Bay Express)

We went tonight for the first time and we laughed a lot. These folks were GOOD. So glad to have this in Oakland - I'll be back!"

"What a fun time!  I rarely give 5 stars but this place is awesome."

We laughed through the whole show. These talented actors delivered a creative performance."

"I had a great time when I attended the Awkward Face show at 8 pm on Saturday night. The actors are quick on their feet, and they manage to illicit many hardy laughs from the audience."

We do not make fun of audience members. We do occasionally ask for ideas,

topics or themes from volunteers. We don't put people on the spot. We're here

to entertain you. We do on occasion ask for volunteers but we don't ask those

that don't volunteer.
