Soda | Apollo Theater, studio | Improv/Sketch | Chicago Reader
This is a past event.


When: Saturdays. Continues through May 23 2009
Price: $15
Wearing suits and directed by TJ Jagodowski, the five members of Long Pork nimbly execute musical numbers, vaudevillian choreography, and stylized blocking in this sketch revue. But elaborate transitions steal time from comedy, and the theatrics elicit more hmms than ha-has. Still, give them credit for delivering low-brow humor with a high-brow wink. While gags often get hammered home—congressional horses keep voting "nay"--the players are consistently creative with video and props. Like early Kids in the Hall, these are some weird, talented dudes. Their sophistication doesn't lead to hilarity here, but I wouldn't be surprised if one of their next shows is fantastic. --Ryan Hubbard
