A Panda Suit, Pythagoras, and Plenty of Puns
nytheatre.com review by Ed Malin
February 24, 2013
Who is the man with the Panda head and snazzy suit? It's comedian Nikhil Tilwalli, who has come to show us the humor lurking inside mathematics and some of the pop culture of the last 2500 years. To find out more about the panda suit, you're just going to have to see the show.
Nikhil is proud of his Indian heritage and the Subcontinental inventor of the number "0". Did that guy need "0" to describe his sex life?
Have you, like Nikhil, noticed that Usher's 2004 rap album "Confessions" bears some stylistic similarities to St. Augustine's irreligious classic of the same name?
If vin Diesel portrayed Mahatma Gandhi, would it be in the film "Too Furious To Fast"?
The humorous puns get cleverer and cleverer, especially for the screening of the 1-D version of "Avatar". There is more sardonic cultural humor. Does the yellow fever vaccine prevent you from falling in love with Asians?
I love puns so I'll stop here and let you choose your favorites in person. Don't be square, go find out about Pythagoras.
