The Polka Dots of Death: The Making of a Supervillain
FOUR STARS | Spenser Payne and Alissa Watson are a devilish delight
Company: The Red Nose Diaries
Venue: 2 — MTC Up the Alley
There are folks that are interested in clown shows, and folks that aren't. This show might win some converts.
Spenser Payne and Alissa Watson are a devilish delight. Through a series of bits, songs, and audience interaction they flirt with delight in all their mischief. And it needs to be said: these two are very, very funny.

Some highlights are a song segment about tearing down lesser clowns, and the moment our two heroes have a fight using only their supervillian powers. There are more but I encourage you to go and see for yourself.
There were a few minor snags, but this is live theatre. When momentum builds the show really sings.
And for parents wondering — no, this is not kid-friendly. But for the kid in the rest of us, Polka Dots of Death is a treat.
