The seven performers in Dry Hump's sketch show create distinct comic characters in its more clever scenes and video segments: a smart satire of Tom Cruise's recent controversial television appearances, a silly spoof of a Chicago newscast, a Family Feud parody full of physical comedy. Never forgetting that this is a late-night staging, director Vincent Truman and his cast also go for gut laughs, delivering less original scenes involving sex, drugs, rap, and some gasp-inducing gross-out jokes about feces, flatulence, and male anatomy. Despite its rawness, however, this is a polished show with something to offer audience members wherever they might be on the sobriety spectrum. Through 9/3: Thu-Sat 11 PM. Chopin Theatre, 1543 W. Division, 773-814-6163. $12.
