Qweirdo The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays. Continues through June 25 2010

Improv team 1, 2, 3, Fag! anchors this rotating showcase of gay comedians. At the performance I caught, which was inconsistent but full of surprises, the trio of thin, boyish men were usually more fey than flaming, and focused on male and female characters desperate to be smarter, prettier, and more upper-class. During a fancy luncheon that would ultimately reveal adultery, depression, and drug abuse, two women exchanged pleasantries: "I hate salmon." "I sort of hate my life." June 25 guests include singer Matty Burton, stand-up comic Cameron Esposito, and Pinque Pony (real-life couple Andy Eninger and John Loos, who improvise female characters in "tiny tank tops"). --Ryan Hubbard

Price: $8
