Clusterfuck New Review (Theater and Comedy) Image

When: Saturdays. Continues through Jan. 30 2016

This "$2 nightcap" of improv and sketch comedy at Annoyance Theatre starts at midnight, but the laid-back vibe and punchy performers might have you think it's closer to last call. The casual, late-night anything-goes atmosphere provides a great sandbox for a rotating cast of special guests to try out new material and get weird; on the night I attended, a stand-up voiced a nihilistic baby doll decrying New Year's resolutions Andy Rooney-style, then guzzling toilet cleaner. That quirkiness didn't carry through improv sets by Destiny's Grandchild and Unicorn, where benign audience suggestions like "harmonica holder" and stories about actuaries yielded a lot of talking past one another. Even the blackouts seemed a bit confused. —Dan Jakes
