He’s a voice for the voiceless, an eye for the sightless and a nose for the nostrilless. Some have called him a villain, some have called him a hero, some have called him “four eyes” and “fatty fat fatboy” but he always got over it. No matter what you call him though, his name and title remains the same: Giving orders and fixing recorders it’s Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman!

It’s the sequel you didn’t know you wanted! In the continuing adventures of this radio-noir, private detective parody, Jake Revolver has left his investigative roots to open a successful, albeit obsolete, video repair business and is charged with finding the ominous and infamous Berlese VCR.

Employing the same silly noir-parody tone and live radio show format as the original, Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman is more amusing and more “radioing” than the first! It’s a seriously funny foray into the dark and hysterical world of a once secret agent turned small electronics mechanic. Don’t miss Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman! In the tradition of Firesign Theater, Jake Revolver combines slapstick, screwball humor, and commercial spoofs for a laugh-a-minute theatrical comedy. Milwaukee Entertainment Group and the Brumder Mansion are proud to present Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman


Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman stars as an ensemble of seasoned Milwaukee area actors including: Phil Stepanski as Jake Revolver (reprising his character portrayal from the prequel Jake Revolver, Freelance Secret Agent), Marcus Beyer as Sage, Jim Donaldson as RB Hefft, Amy Geyser as Dearly Leading, Laura Holterman as Ginger, Jason Nykiel as Fredrick Nobel, Hayley San Fillippo as Top Load, and Pam Scheferman as Detective Copper.
