Paul Noodle PhD. Candidate The Rise and/or Fall of Paul Noodle

A choose your own adventure sketch comedy, where two brave comedians and their tech give the audience an unprecedented (and frankly inadvisable) level of control over the outcome of the show. 

Directed by Paul Noodle (a pool noodle).

'A near perfect example of great sketch comedy.' PopCulture-y

'Sophisticated, farcical, and eminently entertaining...'immersive comedy at its best.' TAGG

'One of the funniest shows I've seen in a long time.' Milk Bar Mag
