On paper this sketch revue by Megan Doherty and Jacob A. Ware offers a lot: video segments, a musical number, a puppet routine, and bits with surprising settings and characters, including a "babytologist." But in performance it's sunk by inconsistent accents, undeveloped and unclear themes, and a spastic style that feels more nervous than energetic. Still, if this show were a bad album it'd have one major hit: "Karen's Condo," in which a naive puppet woman, conspicuously operated by Ware, struggles to pour coffee from a pot and come to terms with news that her husband is a meth dealer.--Ryan Hubbard
