Jake Revolver: Freelance Secret Agent
By Matthew Konkel
Directed by Seth Campbell
In this radio-noir, private detective parody, Jake Revolver fights against conspiracy, double cross and self-reference to uncover the killer of his own narrator! Meant to be performed as the premiere episode of a nineteen-forties live radio broadcast complete with foley artistry and on-stage standup microphones, Jake Revolver: Freelance Secret Agent is packed with puns, play on words, oodles of self-referential absurdity (and Beatles references?). In the tradition of Firesign Theater, Jake Revolver: Freelance Secret Agent combines slapstick, screwball humor, commercial spoofs and a murder mystery for a a stylish and ridiculous tour de force.
