Former Grandma June's Sewing Circle teammates Sherra Lasley and John Sviokla exhibit a fondness for uncouth characters, drastic stylistic changes, and pushing action beyond what's comfortable to watch in this frequently funny sketch revue directed by Brian Posen. Lasley's slim cuteness and Sviokla's pudgy homeliness fuel the comic tension in most bits--they're nearly naked as Adam and Eve nervously getting acquainted. But both remain versatile, smoothly switching from persuasive social satire to uninhibited physical humor. A card trick turns into something different when Lasley starts distracting the audience volunteer by fellating a banana. Look for singing rubber chickens and hand puppets too. --Ryan Hubbard
