 “A Cab is Cheaper Than A Funeral” draws its title from the wise words of Silver’s mother, Nina. “Nina’s Logic” threads throughout the show’s music, comic bits, autobiographical sketches and infomercials for products like “Xtreme Earring”, a cell phone and fax machine implanted in the ambitious customer’s brain (guess where the paper comes out). Nina would be proud,”
Philadelphia Weekly

“For anyone who only saw the events of September 11th on TV, this show will open the window on what it was like from the human scale and perspective.”, Katya Madrid
 “Her gift of narrative is truly astounding.”, Erin DeLouise
“I loved her piece…if you’re wondering whether or not it’s too soon to have a piece with this content, I think the timing is perfect…”, Claire Halpern
“She had the gift of emotion with humor and simplicity. I can’t explain how amazing it was...I have never been so moved. She got an immediate standing ovation and people literally just sat in theatre for five minutes afterwards, stunned.”, Greg Schmalbach


“In sixty entertaining minutes, American performance artists Toni Silver and Joseph Shahadi demonstrated the absurdity of the “Patriot Act”. With their stylized clown faces, the performers explored how the Patriot Act contradicts the US constitution. There was not just laughter…it was a performance about the transparent human being of the future…”, Der Standard (Vienna, Austria)

“Toni and Joe bring their dark humor to a grim subject – the loss of our constitutional rights under the Patriot Act....These guys really bring it to life –they’ve done an amazing job! “
--Nancy Chang, Senior Litigation Attorney, Center for Constitutional Rights
