Sound & Fury's "Dirty Fairy Tales"
The insanely popular sketch comedians are back this year with a hodgepodge of fairy tales, be-smutted by sex and pop-culture references.
The plot at Friday night’s sold-out show doesn’t much matter, since the guys will rotate through different fairy tales every night, porning them up like 13-year-old boys. As usual, the guys ping-pong between finely tuned bits of parody and audience interaction when lines and costumes get flubbed.
The Los Angeles-based trio is reliably funny, charming and energetic, so it seems uptight to criticize them for being exactly as billed — stupid, musical and dirty. But this show isn’t nearly as smart and subversive as last year’s take on Dr. Faustus. This year, it’s a lot of wiener jokes — funny wiener jokes, but wiener jokes nonetheless.
— Mary Agnes Welch
