Oh, you like “smart” comedy do you? Well have you ever been to a sketch comedy show based on the writing of David Foster Wallace, you poser? Infinite Sketch: Brief Interviews with Hideous Sketches is a sketch comedy show that pays loving tribute to every annoyingly depressed 22-year-old’s favorite problematic writer. The show features an experimental narrative structure, characters that are somehow both one-dimensional and extremely complex, and of course footnotes and endnotes and run-on sentences and more footnotes (don’t forget parentheticals. You will love the parentheticals!) It’s the only sketch show that makes you look smart just by seeing it.*
Hosted by Myles Hewette and Sam Bourne. One of them is a big DFW fan, the other does not know we’re doing this!
*Don’t worry, you don’t have to have ever read a book to enjoy this show.
