Party Animals

"Throw the bums out," says a local comedy troupe.


Both Republicans and Democrats get skewered in the Hearts of Darkness comedy troupe's The Impeachment Show. Founder Jeff Blanchard says there are plenty of targets, especially since Cleveland has been named as a possible host of 2008's Republican Convention. "We can't save the schools, but we can raise enough money so they can eat pate de foie gras with their white wine," he says.

The show also takes shots at the other side, including jabs at "Al Gore's meltdown" during the 2000 elections and John Kerry 2004 campaign as "heir apparent to the ketchup queen." "Both sides — the right and the left — suck," says Blanchard. "It's in the middle where all the shit floats."
Wednesdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Oct. 4. Continues through Oct. 11
