THEATRE REVIEW: Weird Al Karaoke @ The Little Mountain Gallery

A failing sound system, a makeshift venue, and visible nervousness – none of which is a bad thing. The Little Mountain Improv group runs out of a nondescript space off Main. They stage weekly shows with a supportive audience and an anything-goes program. This Saturday was a themed night: Weird Al Karaoke Night, in which a host of talented comedians covered songs in the style of the American spoofster. Jokes ranged from Sabbath and Seinfeld to bedwetting and wife-swapping. It was a loose and ad-hoc affair with everyone in on the joke. If you’re looking for a cheap, oddball night, check out Little Mountain Improv (if you don’t mind keeping it down for the neighbours).
