audience members say: 'Foo hosting the wordless Catch-23 turned it into one of the top 5 shows I have ever seen in my entire life. Really brilliant work.' -Sage Tyrtle, Storyteller 'I saw you last night @ the cabaret- Helen, it's been a while that i laugh so much from the soul that I end up crying, seriously. What an unusual pleasure to have it through joy. It was an incredible performance you did, you have a special talent and create a visceral impact and profoundly positively emotional effect. Thanks so much!' -A.M.
