Bath Night

KATHERINE MARRONE
8 pm Thursdays-Saturdays through Aug. 30, Friday August 08 | $17-$20
Shaking the Tree
823 SE Grant Ave.
 
Enter the world of Bath Night and you’ll find a Miss America stage mom, a '90s pop Pandora station that keeps interrupting a torture session and a poker-illiterate James Bond. This 90-minute sketch comedy show, written and directed by Sean McGrath (whom you might remember from the recent stage adaptation of Weekend at Bernie’s), is a side-splitting, jaunty ride. One minute, we get a surprisingly amusing mash-up of Milk and The Dark Knight Rises. In the next, an airplane pilot regales with his confusion over his sexual identity via loudspeaker. Sometimes, things crash: In one sketch, a sloth’s ear-splitting scream proves more painful than amusing. In another, a referee’s off-the-wall penalty calls (“illegal cushion for the pushin’!”) miss the mark. Nonetheless, most of the sketches get you laughing, and the performers are superb: When Brooke Totman, a former cast member of MADtv, plays a middle-aged woman hosting a “Christmas party/wake,” she matches Kristen Wiig in both inflection and charisma. Andrew Harris’ portrayal of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the infamous James Bond villain, is equally on point. And in what might be the funniest vignette of the bunch, Lori Ferraro strips off layer after layer of spandex in front of an anxious date, resulting in chuckles that, at least on a recent evening, lasted well past the end of the sketch.
