Side Hustle | Gorilla Tango Theatre | Improv/Sketch | Chicago Reader

Side Hustle Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Thursdays. Continues through June 23 2011

Side Hustle is Brett Schneider and Michael Levine, who deliver a frenzied sketch show that's dry without being glib, confident and self-aware without being cocky or affected. From beginning to end, the pair command attention with sharp timing and nimble material. Simple premises evolve in absurd and unexpected directions. A date twists into layers within layers of sexual role playing, a CTA commute becomes a portal into heretofore unknown dimensions via zombie apocalypses and Robert Frost's poetry. There are silent sketches and loud ones, a commercial for a "textual innuendo service," and anti-stand-up stand-up about airports that makes the subject fresh again. --Brian Costello
