Bad Hombres | Mission Theater at iO Chicago | Improv/Sketch | Chicago Reader

Bad Hombres Agenda The Short List (Theater) Recommended

When: Fridays. Continues through Dec. 29 2017

The jokes really land in this personal, political, and cathartic late-night double bill of sketch and improv groups Spic & Tan and Mario in iO's Chris Farley Cabaret. Rich Alfonso and Miguel Lepe perform a series of two-man sketches that play off experiences and personalities from their own lives, including a fumbling but sweet encounter between a young man and the Spanish-speaking father of a girl he's dating, and a professional wedding photographer's party duties getting usurped by a drunk guy with an iPhone. In the Mario set, Damian Anaya, Cesar Jaime, and Jose Molina skewer the current cultural climate. My favorite touch: an obnoxious ICE agent's walk-on for a Q&A to blaring rap rock, the soundtrack of insufferable tools everywhere. —Dan Jakes
