The five friends from Steinbach are back again this year with their brand of clean, semi-clever sketch comedy.
There are germs of crisp little sketches here — a Mr. Bean-style slapstick scene involving two inept doctors is, admittedly, irresistible. And there’s some good hoser comic timing in a sketch about a parachute-less skydiver.
But, like a lot of sketch comedy, several scenes go on too long and lack a satisfying payoff, a pointed observation or even a mild laugh. The five performers lost their places in the script a few times, and the scene changes are painfully long, which slows the momentum. Some expert noodling on the keyboards by Alex Major accompanies most sketches and works well. At 45 minutes, there are enough mini-chuckles to make this worth a ticket.
