LENT US ENTERTAIN YOU! with Slap Happy and Glyph, Thursday to Saturday (March 6 to 8) at the Tim Sims Playhouse (56 Blue Jays Way). See listings, page 78, for details. Rating: NNNNN
Sure, Lent starts this week, but that's no reason to deny yourself laughs. Two of the funniest troupes around will make sure of that. Improv aces Slap Happy (Kerry Griffin, Sandy Jobin-Bevans, Dave Pearce and Tabetha Wells) share the bill with queer sketch stalwarts Glyph (Dave Tomlinson and Lex Vaughn) in a weekend of shows at the Tim Sims. I'd recommend seeing the clever Slap Happy quartet any time, especially since member Jobin-Bevans rejoined the Second City mainstage cast, making their appearances rarer than ever. Glyph, hot from Vancouver's Sketch Fest, keep getting better and better. Not to be missed.
