What I liked

Fantasy was the killer sketch of the night, and Polite Racism hit all of the right notes. These were all fun sketches with a talented cast, and Chris wrote tight scripts that pop. It feels quick, easy, and fun.

What I didn't like

In Suicide Pact I didn’t know why the millennials were not grasping their own deaths, or at least why they weren’t just stupid and crazy. What was their reasoning for doing that stuff, even though they knew they’d die? Brittle Trombone took a moment to get into, but once it really started it took off.

My overall impression

A fun and at times hilarious and thought provoking sketch show that sheds light on what it means to be engaged and what it means to be “woke af”. Playfully toeing the line of offensive in moments, it makes the audience exactly as uncomfortable as their conscience allows.
