The Time Is Now (Starting Tomorrow) Agenda New Review (Theater and Comedy) The Short List (Theater) Image

When: Fridays. Continues through Sept. 30 2016

Under the Gun revisits some sketch comedy fundamentals in this prime-time weekend revue. A boss confuses an underling with NSFW double entendres, siblings throw a funeral service for a beloved pet, wacky beatnik poets act wacky, and Hillary Clinton swings hard for the millennial vote. Individual personalities provide comedic glimmers here and there, but there's something stilted and awry in the back-and-forth of it all. Other than the pretty decent gag about a Cheers-obsessed patient recovering from a coma, most bits begin and end on the same flimsy premises, then get muffled out by poor sound cues. —Dan Jakes
