“Lesley Tsina is a talented storyteller and comedian with excellent timing and a commanding presence.“ — Aisle Say Twin Cities
“There is something about the story of Lord of the Files that rings so true, so close to the spinal cord of so many artists and art enthusiasts … it is easy to see why people are flocking to this understated wonder.” — Plank Magazine
Comedian Lesley Tsina worked for a company that made cell phone ringtones. That is, until they announced nine months of layoffs and the entire office descended into savagery. Lord of the Files is a darkly hilarious story about losing your job, losing your mind, and still having to attend an all-company pancake breakfast.
