Sing D*mm!t 

When: Fridays, 11 p.m. Continues through Sept. 12 2008
Price: $10-$12
This hour-long comedy revue by Jason Lord and Amber Rae Schafer avoids many of the done-to-death comedy ideas that sink lesser shows. Lord is capable of writing witty songs in a wide variety of styles (gospel, R & B, old-time rock 'n' roll), and the show's ensemble, directed by Katie Hawkey, executes the material with energy and charm if not a lot of polish. But Lord and Schafer have yet to master the art of leaving us wanting more. Even their best sketches run too long. They usually make their comic point sometime in the first minute, then drag the audience through an additional two or three minutes of variations on the theme. This goes double for Lord's songs, all of which start out strong and then overstay their welcome. --Jack Helbig.
