Storyline

What About Dick? begins with the birth of a sex toy invented in Shagistan in 1898 by Deepak Rushdie Obi Ben Kingsley, and tells the story of the subsequent decline of the British Empire as seen through the eyes of a Piano. The Piano narrates the tale of Dick; his two cousins: Emma, an emotionally retarded English girl; her kleptomaniac sister Helena and their dipsomaniac Aunt Maggie who all live together in a large, rambling, Edwardian novel. When the Reverend Whoopsie discovers a piano on a beach, a plot is set afoot that can be solved only by a private Dick, the incomprehensible Scottish sleuth Inspector McGuffin who with the aid of Sergeant Ken Russell finally reveals the identity of the Houndsditch Mutilator.

Couple points of note. First that cast: Russell Brand, Billy Connolly,Tim Curry, Eric Idle, Eddie Izzard, Jim Piddock, Tracey Ullman. We're talking the royalty of British comedic actors. And if you know Python, specifically Eric Idle, you just know there's going to be some crazy,zany, complex lines to read. I think Billy Connolly had the worst of it, especially with that Daffy Duck inspector's voice. The fact that he cracked up on several occasions testifies to the challenge of some of the passages and the plain-old fact that Idle just wrote some very funny stuff. The readings were all fantastic. I think Connolly and Ullman were the standouts, but Curry and Izzard had their moments too. It's zany, crazy funny material. And the fact that Idle wrote it all by himself is the most impressive thing. I'm a writer myself, so I know what it takes to put down ninety minutes of solid material that flows evenly. I just can't say enough. Sure worth your time, but pay attention, the material flies fast and furious. You don't want to miss a gem or a nugget.
