When: Thursdays. Continues through June 25 2009
Price: $8
Annoyance Theatre's Thursday prime-time offering is an improvised talk show, recorded live and posted online. Each week host Rachel Miller is joined by a fellow improviser who plays the role of guest, assuming an identity inspired by audience suggestions. The opening performance, featuring interview segments juxtaposed with scenes, floundered. Trying to guide the conversation along comic lines, Miller force-fed too much information to the interviewee, Vanessa Bayer. The result wasn't very funny, nor did it exhibit the truthful spontaneity crucial to improv. But the lineup changes weekly, so future performances may be more successful. --Albert Williams
