When entering the show, you are asked to take a slip of paper and write upon it the worst thing that has ever happened to you. Please take the time to do this, as they payoff later is very well worth it.

Grace Bahler and Nick Polk gallantly zip from one skit to another with a bright energy that will keep you laughing. Skits range from various reactions to the revealing she is pregnant to the hassles of drunk people on a plane.

Grace shines in her solo skit as a “Master of all Accents Worldwide” while Nick’s solo brings you back to the frenetic energy of Martin Short during his heyday.

My favorite highlights were the two small children playing “Grown-ups;” scenes from a “Conversion Camp” (complete with a mention of a certain politician); and the two of them sitting around drinking heavily, citing the horrible things from the past two years making these drinks necessary (remember the bowl?).

This show is a nice palate cleanser from some of the more serious shows in the lineup or if you just want a quick laugh or two. However, the venue has very limited seating, and there are only two performances left as of this posting, so get your tickets now.
