(Cut the Bullshit) is Total Bullshit (5-Stars)


(Cut the Bullshit) Len Bakerloo Speaks Truth to Power is playing in:

New York: 59E59 Theater on July 12 & 19 at 6:30 PM and July 12, 2016 at 8:30 (Tickets are $15 here.)

Edinburgh: Moriarty’s on August 5-15, 18-28, 2016 at 11:15 AM each day. Admission is free and non-ticketed. More info here.

In this show, Len Bakerloo (not his or her real name) talks about his (or her) 30 years on Wall Street as a programmer, analyst, and hedge fund manager where he (or she) made his (or her) money by keeping cool, acting rationally, and not believing the bullshit that passes for insight (but is really marketing crap).

Len teaches that the most dangerous bullshit is the bullshit you believe and to help you get better at identifying bullshit he (or she) had created the Cut the Bullshit Game. Len says, “This game is as much fun for the bulshittee as the bullshitter.”

(Cut the Bullshit) Len Bakerloo Speaks Truth to Power earns 5 red stars for being ‘Total Bullshit’ and also 5 yellow stars for having ‘Bullshit Free’ because Len calls out his own bullshit, which doesn’t make it bullshit at all but instead more like honest disclosure.



John Fleming receives nomination for increasing the use of “increasingly” and ‘A’ inflation.


John Fleming after aaaaaaaaaaaaan Increasingly Rough Night.

We are honored to announce that John Fleming has been nominated for the Increasingly Prestigious BS Prize and is hereby entitled to refer to himself as a BS Laureate Nominee.

John is the creator and presenter of the Increasingly Prestigious Malcolm Hardee Comedy Award named after the increasingly deceased Malcolm Hardee.

In addition to his work in spreading the use of the word “Increasingly” John is also known for using ‘A’s to get ahead.

Rather than pester teachers to give him ‘A’s regardless of his work, grades, or intelligence, John has found it useful to use a string of ‘A’s in naming his shows. For example, he got first billing in this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Catalog with his show called Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrghhh! It’s the Increasingly Prestigious Malcolm Hardee Comedy Awards Show – and It’s Free!

John Fleming is the king of the gratuitous ‘A’s placing him at the lead, 11 entries ahead of someone whose real name is presumably Aatif.

It is with humility and affection that we honor John Fleming and wish him luck in all his endeavors. The BS Prize committee only accepts nominations and never issues actual awards. Being the cheap bastards we are, we don’t even mail the certificates. However John may download and print out the certificate himself. Of course, there is the risk that he doesn’t consider the honor worth the cost of paper and printer ink so perhaps a friend will print the certificate and give it to him.
