Mix 7 

When: Fridays. Continues through Dec. 10 2010
Price: $10
Trained by Annoyance Theatre founder Mick Napier, the all-male Mix 7 team emerged victorious from last season's Original Improv Gladiators competition. Their prize? Headlining a four-week run at the Cornservatory. On the night I attended, each of the three acts on the bill had its funny moments, but the overall pace was slow. Building on the suggestion of "vodka," 98.6 presented some predictable but well-executed bits about Russian scientists. Bureaucracy got less mileage out of the suggestion of "divorce," though they cleverly pointed out that your intimate adversary in a domestic dispute could be a canine. Mix 7's set ran the gamut from haberdashers to reincarnation, but I wish these quick-witted guys had done short-form games besides the familiar "Sex With Me Is Like. . . ." --Marissa Oberlander
