Created as part of Maximum Verbosity's Logorrhea: The Most of Maximum Verbosity. It premiered January 3, 2008 at the Bryant-Lake Bowl.
Written by phillip low. Performed by Siarde Evans, Andrew Haynes, Tara King, phillip low, Theresa Madaus and Monica Thomas.
Because of “Logorrhea,” I now know why phillip low is such a rabid fan of the dancers of Mad King Thomas. They all have a delightfully twisted sense of humor. This includes knowing just how to extend a comic bit to the point where it makes the audience start to squirm - and then keep pushing (the aforementioned stroking of the unicorn horn is a prime example). They know their pop culture kitsch down to the finest of details. When a religiously clad Monica Thomas entered to the opening choir anthem of Madonna’s “Like A Prayer,” I knew we were in for it. When the slutty bride Madonna of “Like A Virgin” appeared in the guise of Theresa Madaus, followed by Tara King blending the dance moves of “Vogue” with the business attire of “Express Yourself,” we had a truly unholy trio on our hands. They had the moves down, running that fine line between homage and outright parody. After another awkward moment when the music cut out and the audience was expected to sing along, Tara returned with a unicorn horn strapped to her head to encounter Theresa’s slutty virgin bride (who later revealed the vocabulary of a sailor). Tara’s listing of the virtues of unicorns abruptly halted when she was informed unicorns are not, in fact, real.
