Jake Revolver VCR Repairman

Jake Revolver VCR Repairman

“Jake Revolver VCR Repairman is a pleasantly bizarre mutation of traditional spoofery that nearly transforms into its own kind of meta-comic adventure.”

“Staged as a chaotic radio play, the cast constantly breaks the fourth wall, flummoxed with their own script. They dish out overcooked metaphors, non-sequiturs, slapstick and absurd dialog that flows like something from a book of Mad Libs.”

Written by Matthew Konkel • Directed by Tom Marks

Eons ago (actually about 3 years) when the world was younger and some of us were shorter, MEG produced a hilarious radio-style show titled Jake Revolver, Freelance Secret Agent by local playwright Matthew Konkel. He has now written a sequel to the show curiously titled: Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman. Employing the same silly noir-parody tone and live radio show format as the original, Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman is more amusing and more “radioing” than the first! In the new episode, Jake Revolver has left his investigative roots to open a successful, albeit obsolete, video repair business and is charged with finding the ominous and infamous Berlese VCR. It’s a seriously funny foray into the dark and hysterical world of a once secret agent turned small electronics mechanic. Don’t miss Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman!
