April was a review-heavy month for Pop City Life, but interviews and recaps held their own as well. Read on for our Pop City Life recap of April!
Recent Cutbacks has been making a name for itself in the comedy scene by combining a genuine talent, a love for movies, and a fun, playful atmosphere that engages any audience. We had the chance to chat with Nick Abeel, Kristin McCarthy Parker, Kyle Schaefer, and Matt Zambrano about their latest production Fly, You Fools. The team teases what we can expect from the new Lord of the Rings-inspired show, how it’s been working together, and how the magic just clicked during their original run of the Jurassic Park parody Hold On To Your Butts.
Read on for our exclusive interview with Recent Cutbacks below:
The team that brought the world “Hold On To Your Butts” is back. Recent Cutbacks returns to The Peoples Improv Theater with “Fly, You Fools!” Directed by Kristin Mccarthy Parker, produced by Allyson Morgan, and with foley and music by Blair Busbee and Kelsey Didion respectively, “Fly, You Fools!” will reunite Kyle Schaefer and Nick Abeel performing alongside Matt Zambrano.
Not knowing what to expect when I first sat down to see their Jurassic Park inspired “Hold On To Your Butts”, I ended up leaving having experienced the best comedy show I’ve ever seen. I am entirely confident that they can do it again with their latest production.
Two guys. One hour. A shot for shot remake of Jurassic Park? Life found a way in Nick Abeel and Kyle Schaefer. Along with foley artist Blair Busbee, the duo of Recent Cutbacks take on one of the best movies of all time in “Hold On To Your Butts” — the hysterical comedy show now playing at The Pit in New York City. Using a winning combination of makeshift props, sunglasses, sweat, and plenty of chest hair, the result is a comedy show that needs to be seen to be believed.
