My overall impression

I saw the show last night and loved it! Maybe the best sketch comedy I’ve seen live. This collection of short scenes is well written and clever, but what really makes it work is the chemistry of the cast members. I especially loved the infomercial on human breast milk that took a dark turn! But all of the scenes were delightfully awkward and did a great job of showcasing the comedic talents of the cast. during another of my favorite scenes two ex best friend magicians hash out a decade of hurt feelings during a performance at magic castle. I mean, the premise alone is cringy and hilarious, Right?

But what I REALLY loved about this (and what I was pleasantly surprised by) is that none of the comedy was mean spirited. No people groups are scape goated here. There were no cruel malicious digs. And the cringe factor was never so great that it stopped being light and fun. This was a great way to spend an hour. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
