Rave Reviews on Teachers from The Tangled Web We
The Tangled Web We Watch has several glowing reviews on The Katydids'
hit web series, TEACHERS. Read them here
"The impeccable casting is no happy coincidence as this series is
written and performed by a tight knit ensemble of women called The
Katydids. This explains how balanced their talent is; there isn’t one
weak link in this gang of gals! They share their screen time with the
grace of comic queens and the director is smart enough to give these
women the space to do their thing. Each sketch is stand alone funny
while also connecting with the other stories to create an appropriately
hysterical character arc for each teacher; no easy feat for
sketch. And just when you think something is going to an easy laugh, a
nipple tweak threat is placed or someone buys a Groupon for anal
bleaching." - Danielle Bauman
