Seasonal Special Happenings

Last Call Cleveland Saves Cleveland

When: Fri., Jan. 28 2011

We asked local funny man Mike Polk about his troupe's show tonight at the 14th Street Theatre — Last Call Cleveland Saves Cleveland — and even his response made us chuckle. "The very loose premise is that someone stole our last remaining tourist attraction, the Free Stamp, and Mayor Jackson asks us to find it because he had to lay off the entire police force due to budget cuts. This serves as a loose and poorly executed structure for a 'greatest hits' type of show with a bunch of our sketches and songs. We ran two shows of this back in September. We've made some changes and adjustments since, and it should be pretty decent." We would expect nothing less from guys who have won rave reviews from Toronto to L.A. In addition to Polk (perhaps best known for his Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video), members of the self-proclaimed "world's only sketch comedy group" include Aaron McBride, Mark McKenzie, and Matt Zitelli. Catch them tonight and tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. at 2037 East 14th St. Tickets are $15 at the door or $12 in advance at 216-241-6000 or playhousesquare.org. — Cicora
