Sketchy Characters

The comedy sketch troupe Übertoast knows that its humor can be über-offensive. "Oh, yeah, we've had people walk out," say troupe member Joseph Milillo. "In particular, one of our group member's mother is really offended by us and won't even baby-sit his kids when he performs." Yikes! Sketch topics range from Kevin Bacon's teaching the true meaning of Christmas, to Terri Schiavo's lecturing on the importance of a living will to a faux eulogy for the dearly departed Ken Lay. "[W]hat we're doing is making jokes about the things people can't help but laugh at," says Milillo. Check out Übertoast's latest show, Toastosterone, which will mix songs and video presentations with their sketches, today at 9 p.m.
Fridays, Saturdays, 9 p.m. Starts: Aug. 4. Continues through Aug. 12
