Bloodbaths Are Funny! January 22, 2011

Posted by laurenskelton in Comedy, Improv.

What do Yogi Paliwali, Alex Meyer, Owen Straw, The SheSpot and Blood Squad all have in common? Their names are made up of letters. Also, they descended upon the Market Theater stage to induce laughter at last night’s second installment of Week of Fun! Hilarious host Yogi Paliwal brought menstruation awareness to the audience while stand-up studs Alex Meyer and Owen Straw each shared their definitions of patriotism:  free toilet usage as an inherent right, and hot babes eating buffets. The SheSpot is an award-winning, cancer curing, technologically adept two-woman improv team now accepting donations in the form of large unmarked bills. (One of its members may be writing this. She may also be telling boldfaced lies.) The consistently crafty improv team, Blood Squad, brought to life the epic slasher movie, Shredder: Ubiquitous Death, and with it equal parts education (“of a piece” is not only a folksy colloquialism, but also a phrase frequently used by many a great American author) and suspense, as a small town was taken down by a severed…um, body part. Bet you wish you were there, don’t you?

Don’t fret – you’ll get another chance at amusement tonight as Week of Fun continues back at Market Theater! Throw on your best black turtleneck sweater, those pants your friends refer to as “obscenely tight” and try your hand at art snobbery as you take in some Super Mega Art Show. (Warning: Lots of giggling will occur, so choose your jeans’ level of skinniness accordingly.)

Market Theater. 1428 Post Alley. 8:30pm. $10. All ages.
