Eclectic Curiosity

Variety Shac

While in NYC a couple weeks ago I stopped in again at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre on West 26th Street. Always good experimental comedy and improv happening there. The act for the show I saw this time was the monthly performance by Variety Shac, a four-woman troupe featuring Shonali Bhowmik, Heather Lawless, Andrea Rosen, and Chelsea Peretti. Heather wasn’t there but Shonali regaled us with a couple guitar songs, Andrea and Chelsea both did a couple hilarious stand-up sets, and a few other guests rounded out the show. These ladies are very funny – expect to see more of them. You can sorta get the jist of their offbeat comedy from the shorts they’ve posted here on their website – including a couple that guest star The Daily Show’s Ed Helms and SNL’s Fred Armisen.
