58 - A Comedy About Bike Messengessengering

Show Poster
Client: Tony Mendoza

The client took this hilarious show on the road so the poster needed an area to write in the billing information (yellow portion at bottom; the "Delivery Schedule").

Press Release:
Based on the experiences of real-life Chicago Bike Messenger, Tony Mendoza , we follow the rollercoaster life of Telly Mimosa as he dodges abusive security guards, bullying buses, Segway cops and street weirdos with dumb fetishes. In this dangerous vocation, Telly is forced to face his own humanity as the rest of the world stands defiantly in his bike’s path. He gets a second wind from a strangely hopeful receptionist who helps him see people instead of pedestrians. This new path is even more treacherous because now he must choose between a fixed life as a name or the break-neck life as a number. Performed at the pace of a hot, direct delivery, Tony Mendoza and Thea Lux play out the grounded relationship of Telly and Constance while Daniel Jessup, Alex Fox and Andrew Hobgood juggle sixty characters between the three of them to fill in the ever-looming insanity that surrounds Telly’s everyday life.

In the midst of the lazy rivers, water shows, waterslides, jet skis, cocaine and Michael McDonald, they come face to face with evil at a children’s arcade. And to round out their experience, there is of course a drag queen toy claw machine and a six-foot tall knife wielding egg.
