If you haven't caught the slickrubber-faced comedy of Premium Bob in Dobie McDobie, Nov. 13, is your last chance. The production has been playing at NY's downtown Flea Theatre on 41 White Street.
Directed by Gary Schwartz and written by David Latham, Dobie McDobie is a tale told by a television news magazine, as investigative reporters Premium Bob search out the elusive identity of Dobie McDobie, the ever-changing, typical American boy, man, man-boy, girl, etc. On route to Dobie's identity, they encounter chainsaw wielding, logrolling champions, spit juggling ukrainians, and incompetent liposuction doctors.
Premium Bob garnered critical attention for their show American Style. Sheathed in brown delivery-boy outfits, the "Bobs" (Lantham and Paul Boocock) dished out doses of pop-culture references in quick little vignettes, satirizing everything from "Pottery Barn girl-friends" to Shaft.
Premium Bob brought their "American Style" comedy to late nights at HERE with the serial Laguna Beach earlier this season.
