    What happens when Danley and Purcell put two serial killers in a car together and get them talking shop? Pure comedy! A completely unexpected, off the wall two hander that will give you nightmares once you've stopped laughing.

    A funny, light-hearted comedy about serial killers. Really well done!

    Oh my, a comedy as black as possibly our times. Who knew serio-killers could be funny? Danley and Purcell. Hey, if you’re going to make fun of anyone during these times, it might as well be serial killers. Dark, silly, and makes Shakespeare’s line about killing all the lawyers seem tame.
