James Judd's WHOOP CLICK!
James Judd presents his new show Whoop Click! Known for his hilarious one-man show 7 Sins, Judd's newest autobiographical work tells the story of his attempts to lose weight at a run-down Florida fat camp, accompanied by his four opinionated aunts. NPR host and comedian Marilyn Pittman opens the show with Brittany McGregor and Cameron Adair performing the music of Edith Piaf.
SPECIAL: BAR SEATING JUST $15. Comfy, cushy bar stools running along the side of the theater - not the back.
WHOOP CLICK! began as a workshop production at the Orlando, Regina, London, Winnipeg and Vancouver Fringe Festivals. This local premier incorporates new and rewritten material so much so that it feels like an entirely new play. The intimate atmosphere of The Dark Room lends itself perfectly to Judd's "gossiping best friends" style. It's a local premiere sure to be a highlight of San Francisco's summer theater scene.
CRITICS ON WHOOP CLICK!
Judd is a raconteur able to keep at rapt attention with the more circuitous monologues imaginable. He has a wicked way with a joke (listen for the one about the dozen red roses). Like 7 SINS, this one gallops along at a pace guaranteed to lose him 10 pounds a performance. (Or maybe it's just the sequined orange jumpsuit that does him in.) A slice of pizza has never looked so good. Orlando Sentinel
One show that approaches the glorious is writer/performer James Judd's hilariously funny hour of jokes, observations, reminiscences and digressions loosely based on a two-week stay at a longevity and wellness retreat that Judd shared with four of his Mormon aunts from Utah (better known as the MoMo Sisterhood.) Judd's monologue is filled with great comic and descriptive writing, adroit physical comedy, precise and skillful delivery. Judd has the audience at his mercy. It is a monologue that works and works well. Orlando Weekly
Witty and hilarious, James Judd puts on an intimate one-man show that weaves together politics, religion and anecdotes about forced exercise and sugar-free diets to create what is very much like a night out with an old friend. Poisonous spiders, prison overalls, and the words do not feed constitute this years most charming Fringe performance. Winnipeg Uptown Magazine
