REVIEWS

Columbus Underground – “Stiff Competition by John Busser wraps sharp jabs at the aggressive win-at-all-costs world of today in the hilarious banter of Shana Kramer’s aggressively jaded science teacher and Ricardo Jones’ concerned parents. I could have watched these two go around the room for twice as long as this sketch.”

Columbus Dispatch – “The raucous “Stiff Competition,” … relies both on the coherent if thoroughly skewed inner logic of the situation and on the comic contrast between Jones’ appalled parent and Kramer’s effusive principal, who believes that if she just talks enough she can convince him of the sense of her position. ”
