Pinque Pony and Montgomery & Cooke

When: Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 20 2010

Two duos trigger blush-worthy laughs in this sketch comedy double bill. Becky Eldridge and Jamie Buell lead off, playing Montgomery & Cooke, an old-fashioned vaudeville team that specializes in charming off-key songs, euphemism-filled sex talk, and the cornball signature line, "That's showbiz, kid!" Then the evening takes an explicit, gay turn with Pinque Pony. Real-life couple Andy Eninger and John Loos ride the audience hard with fast-paced, clever sketches. Highlights include middle-aged ladies who "shop to keep the voices quiet" and two old queens who pick up younger men with lines like, "Do you like history? Want to see what 1941 tastes like?" If the jokes aren't enough for you, wait til the guys take off their tank tops and show off their physiques. --Marissa Oberlander
