Review: Venezuela and Friends (Fringe 2011)

Reviewed by MacRae Campbell

Improv comedy is an unforgiving art; it's either funny or it isn't and everything depends on the skill and inventiveness of the actor. Sean Michaels and [CharPo contributor] Vinny Fran├žois host and perform in this entertaining show that features different guests every performance. The ''Way the Hell Off Broadway'' ensemble asked the audience for a situation and a musical genre and then proceeded to sing their sketch.They not only pulled it off but had the children in the audience entranced. The next invited act asked anyone to suggest a theme and someone shouted out ''fire'', something you normally never want to hear in a theatre and which unfortunately was a bad omen for the next fifteen minutes. Sean Michaels and Vinny Francois close with skits done in no known language in a show you can bring the kids to.
