Happy Ending: A Filthy Sketch Show 

When: Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 21 2009
Price: $12
Collaboratively written by its young cast of eight men and three women, Something Clever Production's sex-centered 90-minute sketch revue peaks early and not terribly high with imagined outtakes from The Vagina Monologues. A lot of the subsequent skits depend on kooky-TV-show premises (Olympic porn coverage, a Craigslist-based dating show, a romantically embittered children's entertainer) and high-concept dating fiascoes (a woman's friends recoil from her mentally retarded lover, a straight double date is derailed by gay male desire). It's coarse and untitillating stuff. Witless heckling ("Fag!" "Nerd!") by three wasted knuckledraggers should have been dealt with by the management, since the cast apparently wasn't up to it. --Cliff Doerksen
