Felonious Munk in Afro-Futurism

Clayton Hauck

When: Wednesdays. Continues through April 27 2016
Price: $14, $10 students
The seven members of Afro-Futurism may perform at Second City, but they don't deal in sketch revues. In fact, they're less a company than a collection of black comics—performing solo stand-up routines, for the most part, punctuated with rap segments fronted by Marcel "Mr. Greenweedz" Wilks. There were a couple misfirings on the night I attended, as when an overly zealous Shantira Jackson tried to make a political point by getting the audience to yell out "No!" when it was clear we wanted to say "Yes!" But the lion's share of the show—Felonious Munk's sly banter, Sonia Denis's dizzy (but not ditsy) persona, Martin Morrow's tales of being too clean-cut for his own good, and the alarming confessions marking Dave Helem as perhaps the worst high school teacher in the history of education—was truthful and lots of fun. —Tony Adler
