“It’s Zombie, It’s Odd But “Rotting Corpses Is Hysterically Funny!”

Written by Zombie Joe himself and performed at Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre in North Hollywood, “Attack of the Rotting Corpses” is a fun, creepy romp of wit and theatrical gore! Marvelously directed by Sebastian Munoz, the setting is a hotel concierge with some special, unusual and downright macabre guests.

The show is showcased by the wonderfully funny and perfect comic timing of Tyler Koster as Vic and Corey Zicari as Mack. Tyler and Corey seem to have a great time with their over-the-top yet often timidly witty characterizations of some of the most bizarre hotel staff. Watching Tyler’s eyes and then Corey’s reaction were like a ping pong table of comedy bouncing off each other’s timing. How fun! These two are obviously having too much fun playing these hospitality employees I’d certainly not want to meet!

Now enter the host of strangers and wonderfully weird overnight guests like the overly passionate Laura Nargi playing Doria and you’ll get to see how she prefers to address the other guests. The wild-eyed Cindy is colorfully played by Gina Rizzo Bishop. Monique Fronti plays Liz who you’ll see has an interesting choice of clothing to wear.

Dianielle Kaufman does an incredible fun and feisty Miss Ferranello and Joey Longs plays a duel role of being first a delivery guy and then the overly protective GooGoosh. Watching these two will more than make you smile! Also keep an eye on the various clever props that they use throughout.

Other ensemble players include the multi characters of Chris Hodge playing both Paisley and a freakishly serious delivery guy as well as R. Benjamin Warren playing Skittles and overly protective Blane. James Henderson plays Doug who gets a little more than he expects at this facility. Jahel Corban Caldera plays Damon who has a true Zombie approach to his creepy entrance.

What a fun and wonderfully weird Zombie-filled production of Zombie Joe’s Theatre’s “Attack of the Rotting Corpses.” It’s just plain funny. This company of performers makes for a very exciting and humorous evening of farce that’s filled with zombies. Check them out at
