Forget Ave Q Randy Writes a Novel is Comedic Genius

“One man’s To Kill A Mockingbird is another man’s Twilight saga!”

Randy Writes a Novel

Randy Writes a Novel, has created quite a following, and I can see why. Randy a purple puppet, much like the characters in Avenue Q. He is an Australian, who has been touring the world landing in New York City for his debut at the Clurman Theatre.

As Randy sits behind his desk, he encourages the audience to participate. Basically this is an hour and 20-minute comedy routine you expect to see at Carolines. Randy speaks to the audience finding out where they are from and riffs on what they say. Randy has been kidnapped, arrested, married, divorced and thrown violently from a hovercraft. Now he has written a book and wants to test audience reactions to it. This bawdy puppet has been mingling with Neil Patrick Harris and Jane Krakowski, and his book is called Walking to Skye. Though Randy’s desire is to read some passages from that book, he is crippled by insecurities.  Every time Randy starts to read us a passage, he gets distracted and his sardonic humor goes into play.  His admiration for Ernest Hemingway turns into “The quintessential antihero: talented, charismatic, belligerent, suicidal, alcoholic genius that can’t keep his dick in his trousers– and yet he still found time to write about 15 books. I’ve written ONE!”. This show is really about procrastination and the things we use to procrastinate.

This is not a puppet show for kids. Get ready for the F-bombs, puppet masturbation, hate-filled ramblings, yoga, faith, George Michael, hangovers after long flights and how the airlines put Imodium in your food to avoid long lines at the toilets and so on and so on.

The man behind Randy, is Heath McIvor, who worked for Jim Henson and who you will never meet. Through Randy, he knows how to keep you engaged, hold your attention and create laughter.

This show has created a cult following and more than half the audience was seeing the show for a second time. Now that’s  a recomendation.

Randy Writes a Novel: Clurman Theatre/Theatre Row, 410 W. 42nd St. until June 10
