That’s right! The Monkey Barrel! For all your monkey needs! Come on down, we’ve got Capuccins, howlers, spider monkeys. We’ve even got Apes, if you swing that way, you know, on a vine, which we totally won’t judge you for. Just pick up your disgusting ape and get out of the store, I swear to God if this wasn’t America I’d show what we think of you ape-lovers around these parts.
The actor’s greatest fear, his worst enemy and constant shadow, the theatre critic. Capable of reducing any show to a series of one liners. Damn you critic! Damn you! You just don’t understand me!!!
Well, it looks like our boys are in quite the pickle.
The monster has escaped out into the night, and what do we see through the hole in the wall but Gordon, riding across the night sky like a shooting star. Fly little buddy, fly.
Just saw Sucker Punch. Eh.
If you’re in Chicago though, you should go see The Ugly One by Sideshow Theatre. Very good.
The note for today’s comic: cover of a heavy metal album. I do believe the goods were delivered. Also, I don’t think I pointed it out before but I’m particularly proud of the Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman joke.
Just found out one of my new neighbors is part of the house band for The Eye Inside. Going to go check it out, maybe this weekend. There’s so much theatre and improv here in Chicago, it is overwhelming. I now know the true meaning of the word, and it is this city.
Check y’all on Friday!
Do you think these stories are the only ones that happen in Rex and Gordon’s life? Hardly! They’ve got adventures out the wazoo! They go around solving murders and finding lost crowns and the like. This comic strip is just a tiny slice of what happens.
And if you’re confused by Li’l Caesar, here’s a li’l primer. He’s here to stay, people! And he’s a libra, just like me (I decided that just now).
