What I liked

“Nickel Dickers” is a 45 minute show based off a piece originally written for a 20 minute play competition. That original 20 minutes is very entertaining, focusing on two foul-mouthed, sexist, racist producers who speaking entirely in period dialogue to great comedic effect.

What I didn't like

Unfortunately, it’s PAINFULLY obviously when that original 20 minutes ends. The second half is awful, pulling focus from the leads to add new characters that I didn’t find remotely funny. There’s still the occasional funny line, but I spent most of the time wondering how much more I had to sit through before the show ended.

My overall impression

The first half was great, the second half was mostly garbage.
