Technical Director

While “Ferris Mueller’s Day Off” is, like many Brave New Workshop shows, a showcase of political sketch comedy, the definition of “political” goes beyond the easy name-checking of current events you’ll find in a “Saturday Night Live” cold open. Sure, we get familiar caricatures of people like Mueller, Donald Trump and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but we also get explorations of more ambitious, abstract issues.
Ira Brooker, Star Tribune

There’s something therapeutic about having a drink or two and sharing a laugh about the sheer volume of absurdities of the world today….Brave New Workshop is at its comedic best when it pushes the line of what they can poke fun at without the subject matter getting too dark.
Stephanie Kwong, PhenoMNal Twin Cities
