"One of the most entertaining and thought-provoking pieces I've seen in a long time."
Theatre Is Easy
Saudek's body is a splendid storyteller; he is a crackerjack physical performer, displaying traits and business that call to mind other clowns, comedians and cartoon characters such as Art Carney’s Ed Norton; Rowan Atkinson’s Mr. Bean; and Blondie’s Dagwood Bumstead...Pure hilarity."

"Not since Bill Irwin has there been a physical comedian — aka “clown” — with the soul, sophistication and storytelling genius of Richard Saudek."
Gay City News
"Saudek is ablaze with unfailing energy and specificity. His expressiveness is unparalleled, and each movement is curated to optimal effect. beep boop is simultaneously a celebration and indictment of our relationship to our devices."
The Reviews Hub
"Richard Saudek is an exquisite clown. Having learned his craft from the masters, he has created a character that we can “almost” identify with that shows us a reflection of our digital world and how it encompasses every moment of our lives."
