What makes this show remarkable isn't its structure. Anyone who's been to Second City will recognize the format—one sketch after another, some with songs, some without, some laugh-out-loud funny, some not. What makes it noteworthy is the quirky, likable cast, a diverse and hilarious gaggle of misfits, each of whom finds a way of communicating her or his own brand of funny in the well-worn Second City formula. Jasbir Singh amazes with his Chaplinesque physical comedy. Martin Morrow and Ali Barthwell kill in an audience-participation piece about Kwanzaa. But to single out three is hardly fair in a show packed with energetic, eager, and able performers. —Jack Helbig
