AWKWARD AT BEST
Our mission is to confront and connect with the world through a blend of comedy, stupidity, acrobatic circus skill, and good old fashioned charm.
Currently available shows are:
"Date Requested. Date Confirmed."
Full-length theater show for black box and proscenium stages.
Created by Leah James Abel, Rebecca Houlihan, Olivia Hallie Lehrman
Directed by Sayda Trujillo.
On this absurd ride of talking dogs, five-foot babies, singing lesbians, and tantric sex, Ms. Pretty Smart scours the audience (and maybe even the Internet) for the man of her dreams. After seeing into the future, where she is finally happy and paired with a mysterious and charming Papi, she wakes up with no clue who he was, or how to find him.
Three physical comediennes play over ten characters, performing circus and stupid human tricks; scenes run the gamut from sweet glances to tantric sex to geriatric sex, spanning 40 years in about that many minutes.

A hilarious, bawdy, and surreal blend of athleticism, comedy, and crazy characters.
"Monkey and the Trainer"
Two characters that you will love to love, even when they’re not sure how to feel about each other. A twisted take on a beloved classic: the travelling performer and her trained monkey.
They perform acrobatics, traditional physical comedy bits, and audience interaction. But who’s in charge here? This show is all kinds of wrong, yet it all ends up right, if not upright, in the end.
The monkey and trainer are available:
--to emcee your events or parties
--for 35 minute-long shows
--corporate walk-around animation at private and industrial events
"Bippy and Dippy"
They will stare with long blank stares, they will bounce, nag and ramble, but they will always, always entertain. Bippy and Dippy have a long history as step sisters.
