Six really big guys with glasses perform this long-form improv show, giving it a good-hearted goofiness. The ensemble, directed by Liz Allen, plays with male stereotypes of all sorts, straight and gay. The night I attended, the comedy was about the tension between men: if you like a guy, do you hug him or throw some more trash on the fire? In one of the best scenes, the performers reimagined the founding fathers as a bunch of guys hanging out. To express their happiness with one another, they mooned strangers, burned stuff, and peed on it. The ticket price also gets you into Nogoodnicks, which follows. Through 10/27: Thu 8 PM. I.O., 3541 N. Clark, 773-880-0199. $5.
