The comedy troupe, comprising Nora Burns, John Cantwell, Marissa Copeland and Terrence Michael, promises "a trashy foray into the depths of bad taste and seditious satire." Among their targets are Marlee Martin, Helen Keller, Calvin Klein, Cher, Joan Crawford, TV talk shows, late night infomercials and phone sex.
The Tamarind is at 5919 Franklin Ave. Tickets are $15. Call (323) 660 TKTS.
