Us? Sarcastic? Never!

Sarcastic Squad opens third season Friday



    Us? Sarcastic? Never!
    Adam Guerino founded the Sarcastic Squad and apparently thinks he'll have some funny things to say during these shows. Whatever.

    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 Sarcastic Squad, founded by Adam Guerino, also features laugh-out-loud comedians Eric Lutz, Beth Sterling, Cameron Esposito, Mike Lee in addition to others on a local and national caliber.

    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.

    The shows take place at Berlin through May 29th. Admission is $5, and includes DJ Greg Haus "Cosmix" spin, the electronica dance party known throughout Lakeview for bringing down the house.

    And no, we know what you're thinking, this time we're not being sarcastic. If you can believe that.
