The examples are endless: "Me? A snob? As in possessing a discerning palate that differentiates me from the rest of the riff-raff? Never."
Or how about "Governor Blago? "Love the guy. Upright, humble, simple, altruistic, wish he'd never left the political arena."
And of course, "Winter in Chicago? A total breeze, you barely notice it. Your cuteness will not be compromised, your skin will not turn green, and your favorite pair of boots will not be !@#$# ruined." We're just sayin'.
The theme, of course, is sarcasm, and only in Chicago will you find an exceptionally talented group of comedians dedicated to spreading awareness of the twisted humor's appeal.
The show, opening it's third season on Friday and running through May 28, promises a medley of stand-up, sketch, improv (musical and otherwise) spread over two stages.
And no, we know what you're thinking, this time we're not being sarcastic. If you can believe that.
