Funny people

It's not just the title of a promising new movie, there are actual funny people doing their thing around town. Two examples:

1. Last night I attended the opening performance of the Second City e.t.c.'s 33rd revue, Studs Terkel's Not Working. Enjoyable sketch comedy from a talented cast. My Flavorpill preview is forthcoming.

2. Tomorrow night at ComedySportz Theatre is an offbeat comedy show called DrekFest, the final round of a national search for America's worst play. (To be clear, it's talented playwrights trying to fail hilariously at their craft.) My Flavorpill preview is here.

Get out there, buy some tickets, support live theater, prop up our teetering economy, and have a good laugh.
