Life in 35mm: An Improvised Documentary 

When: Saturdays. Continues through Aug. 26 2017
Price: $6
I've gotten a handful of laughs from comedian Jordan Wilson every time I've seen him onstage, and he and Mark Walsh provide some inventive, go-with-the-flow long-form storytelling here. Good improvisers like these can roll with almost anything; wild-card collaborators aren't one of them. As a whole, this particular Annoyance troupe lets wigs and inscrutable character swerves work the jokes for them, and at the performance I attended, the seemingly straightforward suggestion of "space" resulted in an insurmountable number of dropped story cues. I suspect that's partly why the set felt so short, ending without much resolution. —Dan Jakes
