The show made zero reference to the assumed "Rage Against the Machine". I have been going to Dudley Riggs since 1976, and with the exception of the first one, they have all been terrible. I just leaned that they are the longest running comedy troupe...More

Hey there, We're sorry we're not your cup of tea anymore, but thanks for sticking with us for so long! You've been seeing us for 40 of our 60 years of existence, which sounds like it's been a pretty Sisyphean task for you. We definitely...More

The cast and their material defiantly has a political and social liberal bias. The 'age against the machine show' ( a greatest hits compilation) has a few fun moments....but the continual references to racial, sexual inequalities eventually takes its toll on a person. You can...More

We've been here many times, and usually laugh a ton. I can usually get past the fact that many skits have something political in them, but it was just too much this time. You can do it some, but if you do it too much,...More

We saw the 10pm show, The Polarizing Express. The comics had us bent over laughing! The drinks were reasonably-priced, and the server was very efficient. We would definitely make this a stop on our next trip to Minneapolis.

The show is fun and the performances are spot on. They do not pull their punches and this is not a place for the easily offended. It is an inexpensive evening and I enjoyed myself.

My wife and I had a great time at the Guardians of the Fallacy Show at Brave New Workshop. The actors and actresses are extremely talented. Minneapolis is outstanding for theatre and performing arts. Brave New Workshop is certainly one of the ventures worth visiting.
