Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
The Crosseyed Rascals bring back the squeaky-clean with their Winnipeg brand of Low German comedy improv. The four troupe members (boasting only two actual Mennonites) invite the audience to choose eight themes that are acted out and then whittled down to one mighty uber-sketch in one hour.
The opening night show featured a sandbox love affair, greedy chocolate consumption, musical torture and a borscht-laced wedding, which yielded some solid hits, all above the belt. Keeping with the idea of knocking things down, the Rascals ended the evening with a kung fu movie parody reduced to it’s bare minimum.
It was an amusing show with a few good laughs and a steady pace, more of a boxkampf (boxing match) than a blitzkrieg.
— Wendy King
