This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
Two girls (average height of 5' 7”) once decided they could probably stand each other enough to be a double act. They were 37% right. So they've made a show of their sketches. And themselves. Fast-paced, irreverent and silly, the sketches are sharply observed and often absurd. Topics covered - is Stern an interesting person? No. Will she ever be? Yes or no. Are they better off alone?
