There's a lot to like about Congo Square's first sketch comedy revue: the energy is high, the performances sharp, and much of the material is strong and funny, especially bits probing America's racial fault lines (a few address the events in Ferguson, Missouri, in a manner both pointed and wise). Some of the material, pitched straight at the company's African-American audience, left this middle-aged white guy baffled, but those moments were few and far between in an inclusive show meant to entertain and enlighten everyone. —Jack Helbig
