‘Bad Boys Of Abridgement’ Reduce World Of Sports

Filed by KOSU News in Art & Life.

The Reduced Shakespeare Company comedy troupe is known for condensing everything from American history to the Bible into 90-minute stage shows. No subject is too large or daunting; they’ve taken on great books, Western civilization and Hollywood.

Now, they’re tackling sports. The Complete World of Sports (Abridged) aims to reduce every sport ever played in the entire history of the world. While familiar favorites such as basketball, football and soccer figure into their bits, so too do more obscure sports such as curling, wife carrying and cheese rolling.

Austin Tichenor, Reed Martin and Matt Rippy — the so-called “bad boys of abridgement” — join NPR’s Neal Conan to break down the weird world of sports. [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
