Dick Johnson, Private Eye

Written by Maxim Lardent and Mark Valentin, Dick Johnson, Private Eye premiered at the 2012 Las Vegas Fringe Festival.  Here’s what the press had to say about it.

"A parody of radio mysteries with old-timey effects and fake ads that left you gasping with laughter—there was a lot to like about Dick Johnson.”  4/5 Stars, Jacob Coakley, Las Vegas Weekly

"Maxim Lardent and Mark Valentin’s nostalgic comedy is very creatively penned and a Fringe smash." David McKee, Las Vegas CityLife

"Lardent is a perfect breed of actor for exaggerated comedy. He knows how to milk a laugh but is also able to get us to believe in him as a character…He’s the truth of the production; proof that a nonsensical character can be made real if an actor believes enough."
Anthony Del Valle, Las Vegas Review Journal
