Wonder Showzen, the revelation of Impakt’s AV-BBQ of this summer, is back with an especially compiled program filled to the brim with new material. For those who have missed them this summer, this is the chance to make up, while those who have seen the show can now be treated to new adventures by the old familiars.

Wonder Showzen is an absurdist comedy/variety show spiked with a team of puppets, kids, cartoons and old educational films. Remember all those Wednesday afternoons you spent in front of the tube? Sunday mornings in your jammies? Well, Wonder Showzen takes your favorite things about watching TV as a kid and turns them into a twisted nightmare. Wonder Showzen is made by PFFR. A shimmering gem crashed down from the heavens, black clouds exploded unto the earth and PFFR (pronounced P.F.R.) was formed. PFFR is made up of a small group of highly motivated young people (13, 15 + older) who started a band to cause a riot in the library. Every instrument is used, every yowl rings of freedom, and the resulting fury and condescension puts a large crack in the Berlin Wall. Frequently fantastic, incorrect, loose-limbed and choking on horse hair, PFFR is the final knife fight betwixt theory and vehement concrete specimen. “United We Doth” answers the eternal question “Would I?” with a resounding “Hair-lip”. The 21st century really began on 9/11, but it really really began the Spring of 2003 when PFFR took it up a notch.
