Anatomy of a Smoker

The kids are raving about the skit performed by Phoenix Theatre: Anatomy of a Smoker with Wild Man Mo.

Wow!!!!…That skid was totally crazy, I wasn’t sure if he was alive or dead, I thought that he was killed in a crash, I never imagine that CIGARETTES were the cause of such an amazing man!….Wow that was a wakeup call!…

The Skit that was performed Earlier was really interesting. It actually wasnt boring and it was funny. Its very true everything they said. I enjoyed Watching it as much as i enjoyed being here …
