original-comedy.
Founded three years ago by four
University of Michigan students for the
purpose of a one-shot, live comedy
show, the Funnies' members write,
direct, produce, and perform all their
own material, which traverses the
range from satire to "human comedy"
to the absurd.
The current Sunday Funnies incan-
tation consists of fourteen people, a
mi'xture of new members and old, some
of which in the latter category have
switched to more technical positions,
such as associate director or producer.
This is indicative of the group's
willingness to allow each member the
freedom to write or direct as well as
act. Depending on the material at hand,
it can be a boon or a detriment to the
Funnies.
Their Michigan Theatre show began
with a sequence wherein the nine
prominently-featured performers sat
in' chairs on stage, with the Sunday
color comics section obscuring their
faces. Each member proceeded to
reveal themselves by lowering the
newspapers and discussing a relevant
topic-such as why Dennis the Menace
hasn't aged in over twenty years-with
another member or two.
Approximately the first half of act
one ran too slowly, for a variety of
reasons. The pacing was rather awk-
ward, due to the writing in the first six
sketches. The first one dealt with the
old marriage counselor routine where a
bickering couple come for help from a
model husband and wife team who ap-
parently are the picture of bliss and
compatibility. By the end, the roles are
reversed, with the counselors fighting
and the other couple looking on in
amazement.
The trouble with this sketch-and the
five following it-is that the actors had
to struggle with hackneyed material
and a lukewarm response by the
audience. Not to say they weren't fun-
ny-for the most part, they were-but it
took a short grace period for the Fun-,
nies crew to get into the spirit of the
things and really hook the audience.
This occurred when cast member
Rich Schmidt came out in trenchcoat
and hat to portray a Sam Spade-styled

detective in a mostly monologuical
sketch called "The Large Nap" (sic.).
Instead of milking the idea for all it's
worth, Schmidt underplayed the role,
which far greater enhanced the
comedic potential of the situation.
From that point onward, the rest of
act one mored. Larry Bell was out-
standing as a Greek tailor in the
"Altered States" parody, "Altered
Pants." He played his part vigorously
and elicited many well-deserved
laughs. The script, by director David
Saling, was also one of the most
cohesive and original contributions to
the show.
Act two began on a strong note with
"The Sub Set," about the first luxury
submarine for tourism. Mark Whit-
ney's buoyant portrayal of the captain
who keeps slipping uncontrollably into
"pirate dialect" was easily the
highlight of "Set," especially con-
sidering the way that it decayed down
to an absolutely pointless and unfunny
conclusion.
Unfortunately, the rest of the second
act was largely hit and miss. Although
there were no out-and-out failures, it
fluctuated between high-energy absur-
dity ("The Wedding," with Whitney as
a confused groom and Alice Gleason as
an enthusiastic, camera-happy witness
the standouts), fast-pased plays-on-
words ("Bubble Gum Box Office," a
weird mixture of underagers sneaking
into an X-rated film and their encounter
with theatre security), weak social
commentary ("Hard Cell"), old
routines (the bothersome stranger on
the train in "The Commuter"), and
musical comedy ("Autumn Amour").
There was, however, one particularly
funny piece called "Up the Fjord
Without a Paddle" which parodied
Ingmar Bergman films, Japanese
monster movies, and University film
societies all in one.
Of all the sketches the Funnies put on
Saturday evening, this one benefited
the most from its inordinate length
Daniel Kimm's hyper-active role as
character straight from your favorite
Godzilla movie (pick one) kept the
audience in stitches and was the final
"up" moment in the program.
It's nice to know that Ann Arbor has a
group like the Sunday Funnies. They
obviously have it in them to put on a
funny show, as their Michigan Theatre
gig displayed, they just don't take any
chances. . The Sunday Funnies are
enough to please mom and dad, but
their actual test will come when they
decide to really try something dif-
ferent.
