Pete Correale Recommended New Review (Theater and Comedy) The Short List (Theater)

When: Jan. 6-8 2012

Headliner Pete Correale goes no-holds-barred on his married life, and it's a pleasure to watch. Second City's new UP stand-up room provides a nondescript but intimate backdrop as this quintessential 21st-century urban guy stands in amazement at the ongoing wrestling match between him, his wife, their friends, and—often, oddly—airplanes. Married couples will empathize while singles can sit back and mock. Though the jokes sometime dip into territories that were familiar decades ago—trading sexual favors for chores, withholding sex—Correale's delivery keeps us with him. Vince Carone opens and Dan Ronan hosts. —Josh Sumner
