Sketch of the future promises comedy, a bit of sleaze and Bastards Inc.
The only thing less funny about the second performance of the new Bastards Inc. show is the catchphrase.
The phrase is “March Fourth. Into the Future.”
Now it’s more like “March 11th. Into the Future.” Because the second and last performance of this sketch comedy revue is 8 p.m. Thursday. Right: March 11.
The content, however, is just as funny as it was last week. The troupe, via its Twitter feed, called it “hugely successful” and suggested this week’s performance has things other than a fully operational pun to recommend it — namely “Ryan said he’d wear even less clothes!”
That’s Ryan Petti, one-fourth of Bastards Inc., which began performing together in 2005 in the basement of the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge. (The other members are Erin McGhee, Taylor Newhall and Matt Tucker.) Bastards Inc. was named Best Improv Group in New England at last year’s Providence Improv Festival.
Tickets are $10 or $7 for students and seniors at ImprovBoston, a comedy club at 40 Prospect St., off Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square, Cambridge MA.
