Saw “Talkies” at the basement of Lost Weekend Video tonight, a mix of stand up and sketch comedy, really fucking good.— Dysmorphia (@dys_morphia)March 8, 2014
Some of the pieces were better than others, as is always the case.— Dysmorphia (@dys_morphia)March 8, 2014
At their best the sketch pieces were transcendent. I mean they took their concept, explored it, pushed it to it’s edge, and went past it.— Dysmorphia (@dys_morphia)March 8, 2014
Commitment was the word of the day. Commitment to the comedic concept, to the awkward moment, to social critique, to being fully present.— Dysmorphia (@dys_morphia)March 8, 2014

My favorite pieces were Scott Vermeer’s “Sensuous Jazz” and the Imaginary Radio’s brother reconciliation piece.— Dysmorphia (@dys_morphia)March 8, 2014
Both pieces dealt with authority, masculine vulnerability, uncomfortable sexual interactions, and heteronormative expectations.— Dysmorphia (@dys_morphia)March 8, 2014

This is how comedy can be when it’s good. This is why I have little patience for comedy that relies on bigoted tropes to be funny.— Dysmorphia (@dys_morphia)March 8, 2014
Comedy can tear apart reality and spill its strange guts then paint jokes on the wall with its rainbow blood.— Dysmorphia (@dys_morphia)March 8, 2014
