If you only go to one sketch and improv 10th Anniversary show this year, make it this one. In the long tradition of comedy shows over-hyped with purple sentence after purple sentence culminated by fence post-lines of exclamation points, Just the Funny's 10th Anniversary Blowout Weekend stands apart! (Because it actually will be funny-no comedy group lasts ten years without some serious chops.)
The veteran jokesters, owners of their own theater on Miracle Mile, are flying in alumni from all over the known world for two awesome shows on Friday night. Then they're taking a 12-hour break for the copious ingestion of drugs and booze, minor crime, and the rekindling of old flames for one blowout weekend of attachment-free sex, sobering up just in time for two more awesome shows on Saturday night, which are really just the appetizers for a final night of illegal, immoral and inadvisable wild abandon that will end just in time for several super-awkward car rides to Miami International Airport that will be capped off with a few light hugs and a curt, but heartfelt, "See you at the 15 Year!"
Fri., March 6, 9 p.m.; Sat., March 7, 9 p.m., 2009
