Local improv troupe Crosseyed Rascals is known for its clean comedy, but on Saturday they invited some guests to join them and it was an anything-goes 60-minute show where skits featured some swearing and dirty bits, but never crossed the line into tastelessness.

The expansion to a nine-member crew helped add fuel to scenes when things started to flag, with members tapping in and out or getting “fired” when they were less than inspired.

The TV show-themed improv games varied depending on suggestions from the audience and what members were performing. A skit involving lines from reality shows and a channel-surfing bit worked best, while Breaking Amish and Blockbuster were duds (a cast viewing of Raging Bull is definitely in order).

Still, the Rascals are always energetic and enthusiastic and the venue (a church) is one of the fringe’s best with comfy seats and a coffee bar. Bonus.

From the Fringe program:

Think you know the Crosseyed Rascals? Think again. (If you're reading this in a cheesy cable-TV-announcer-voice, you are on the right track.)

This season, The Crosseyed Rascals come to you uncut, unedited and unsupervised. It's reality television like you've never seen it. (Because it's actually unscripted. And, well, not on TV.)

Don't miss your chance to see the family-friendly Rascals cross genres, cross boundaries and maybe even cross dress. (But we don't make any promises.)
