Favorite sketches, done effortlessly yet with keen precision, include: a man drowning in a leaky submarine, with sound effects “drip drip drip” to curdle your blood; O.J. Simpson in jail deciding whether to have water or juice; a roundelay of gibberish conversations being translated by a cheerful moderator, and a couple searching in a haunted house for the remains of a (may... full review
