Hey there, time traveller!

This is a grab-bag of skits, songs and dance routines created and performed by the real-life Portland-based couple Chase Padgett and Stacey Hallal.
Their joyride begins with a dance in the dark with two flashlights, followed by a funny skit about a psychic whose show is hijacked by an attention-starved spectator claiming to know all the people he is trying to contact in the afterlife. There are other good pieces, including Padget playing a rutabaga farmer voicing a commercial to a wide variety of musical styles, but overall, it is uneven.
Padgett, best known as the music whiz behind last year’s hit Six Guitars, shows off his comic chops well, while Hallal is a stage dynamo, fast and fearless. It’s likable, but not laudable.
