Dudley: Rigged for Laughter

Legendary local funnyman Dudley Riggs has a story like few others, spanning life in the circus, Vaudeville, and the founding of the Brave New Workshop as a bastion of counter-culture satire. Joseph Scrimshaw stars as Riggs in this collaboration between the BNW and the History Theatre. Appropriately enough, it's engineered as a sketch comedy show that doubles as biography. Here's betting that the result will have an appropriate amount of affection for its subject, with a welcome lack of reverence. You don't make it as far as Dudley by taking yourself too seriously, after all. (Photo by Scott Pakudaitis)
