Signature show of The Swarm. They performed this show on Friday nights (first at 10:00pm, later at 9:30pm) at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre from 2001 (?) until August 13, 2005. Directed by Kevin Mullaney.


When it debuted, the Swarm performed a monoscene in the first half, and an accelerated montage in the second half. They attempted to make this second half a distinct form called the Atomic Harold but never felt they were successful.

Later in the show's run, they performed a montage in both halves. Callbacks could and did occur between the two, thematically different, halves.

Members of the Swarm referred to the show's structure, at times, as a "spineless Harold."
