Sugar-high sketch-comedy duo the Money Kids, subjects of a Reader story last January, perform their final show as a local act this Friday. At the end of the month they're moving to New York City. Lauren Lapkus says that she and partner Candy Lawrence chose New York based on the growing reputation of its sketch community. "We want to keep our live show going strong."
For their last Chicago show, expect "a mixture of old faves and some soon-to-be new faves, as well as some flaming hot new dance moves." You can also expect an Amy Sedaris-like fancy for wigs and false teeth, and anything-for-a-laugh energy that never gives out. The farewell set is part of the Playground's Grafitti sketch showcase, headlined by male sketch duo Kerpatty. Fri 8/22, 10 PM, Playground Theater, 3209 N. Halsted, $10, BYOB, 773-871-3793 or the-playground.com.
