The New American All-Stars Member Picks

When: Thursdays. Continues through June 18 2009

On the night I saw them, the New American All-Stars struggled to find a rhythm. They seemed like funny people with whom I wouldn't mind passing an hour at a bar, but at this performance they lacked the verbal facility to pull off a sustained, or even coherent, group of scenes. And despite a few good throwaway one-liners--as well as some encouraging glints of intelligence and goofiness--the group fell back too often on the wearying mainstays of aspiring improvisers everywhere: nerd-chic pop obsessions and casual homophobia. --Leon Hilton
