Super Pal: The Saving of the World

The rogue comet, Skippy, is headed right for Big City in this superhero mockumentary. The mayor is looking for a Super Hero to save the city. Most of them seem to be busy, or indisposed at the moment. Super Pal is discussed, but doesn't seem to be their first choice. We hear about Super Pal from his friends, his agent, his girlfriend, and find out about his childhood. (And the writers said, "We didn't even know we were making fun of FEMA.")

Recorded at the Mark Time Radio Show at CONvergence, 2005.

Super Pal is sooooo funny. Snappy and clever, like what I liked about the Martian Trombone play. And the actors are really good. You're right, it's with this super hero craze that's been going on... The play is really good satire, and so great the way it clips along!

"These performances were a lot of fun. I loved the documentary-style interviews in telling the tale of Super Pal, and the jokes in Jewels made me laugh out loud a couple of times! Very witty, and hearing the audience respond now and then in the background really made it all the more enjoyable. For a live performance, it has a better sound than a lot of in-studio performances. A very enjoyable hour!"
