Synopsis

John Clancy / 3m, 2f Fatboy is a brutal comedy inspired by Alfred Jarry's Ubu Roi. This satire on modern America's insatiable appetites--from gobbling up 72oz. steaks to small nations--is presented as a live-action Punch and Judy show. In this fast-moving, shocking, profane, dead-on, funhouse mirror reflection of the world today, the brutish allegory known as Fatboy, along with his monstrous wife, Queen Fudgie the First, stands trial for war crimes. Despite overwhelming evidence the court refuses to convict and succumbs to Fatboy's "persuasive" tactics. "Brazen...daring...highly entertaining." - Jason Zinoman, The New York Times "Make room for Fatboy. Meaner than Stalin, hungrier than Idi Amin, deadlier than Pol Pot, he is the grotesque composite of every despot who ever lived...he is also savagely funny...Some plays ridicule their audience; others inspire political action. Fatboy may be the rare work that does both."- Jorge Morales, Village Voice "This is brilliant political satire, hitting the zeitgeist right where it hurts...A ground-breaking piece of American absurdism, a transatlantic take on the Ubu tradition that goes beyond imitation to seize and transform the myth for a new age of American power.

" - Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman "Clancy's 2004 Edinburgh Fringe hit adaptation of Alfred Jarry's Ubu Roi comes just in time for the Wall Street meltdown and one of the most surreal election campaigns in American history."-Steven Leigh Morris, LA Weekly "A gleefully rule-breaking Punch-and-Judy show...Funny as hell."-Time Out Chicago
