the atomic fireballs
Never mind the fact that they're four funny women in the still male-dominated world of sketch comedy. In just three years, the Atomic Fireballs (Sam Bee, Fiona Carver, Sarah Carver and Allana Harkin) have turned into one of the city's best troupes. They're always clever, and perform with panache -- that's their theatre training showing. The quartet unveil new and classic bits at this Saturday's Russ-Meyers-titled Run... Fireball... Run! at the Rivoli. See listings, this page, for details.
