I felt like I took a trip along the dream stream of Consciousnessof a collective of strange and witty children in the shape o adults. I not sure how one writes a review for such weird hilarity. ... full review
HELENE UDY certified reviewer June 15, 2013
I went to see if because I absolutely love John Gilkey's work ( look him up on youtube) . And I wasn't disappointed. It was superbly absurd. And VERY very funny. Impossible to describe it.If you see it, I think you'll agree. A night of rolicking fun. I'll see it again! ... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 23, 2013
This a remarkable twist on the traditional sketch comedy show. Combining the physical with clownish impulses, the evening demonstrates a new vitality n the improv world. While not a show with an arc, it is certainly a most wildly engaging evening. Highly recommended.... full review

Willfully and purposelessly bizarre. The cast literally jumps around the stage shouting gibberish. Rivals Philosophy in the Boudoir for actors masturbating onstage. fringeblog.webs.com... full review
NAOMI BENNETT certified reviewer June 25, 2013
I would never have gone to this show had I not seen their bit at the Fringe Cabaret. Though filled with non sequiturs and with no clear storyline, the cast of WET THE HIPPO ran on their total commitment and complete trust and ability to listen to each other. I was totally engaged the entire time, and even the bits I had seen before were still hysterically funny! A must see for the Fringe!... full review

Best thing I've seen in the theatre since I can remember. Most creative, weird, funny, poignant "performances"! NOT like regular improv which is sometimes boring and flat; I was breathless from laughing. ... full review
JOANNA SYIEK certified reviewer June 24, 2013
One of those shows I could watch over and over. This troupe of actors truly brings improv/sketch to the next level, inviting the audience into their weird and wonderful wedding of absurd and naturalistic scenes. My favorite of the Fringe fare thus far. Not to be missed!... full review
GITA ENDORE certified reviewer June 24, 2013
Claire Titelman invited me (full disclosure) I loved what she and Michael did. Natalie could be the next Sarah Val (Vowell). And the guy (in the Free Bradley Manning shirt the night I was there) he's the whole package. We're all going to say "we saw him when..."... full review
