Comedy

Company lives up to its

advertising

By Lisa Magnino
The Comedy Company called last
weekend's production "The Really,
Really, Big Show." Such a broad
claim has to put one on edge about
how "really" good it will be, but
fortunately the show lived up to its
billing.
The night got off to a slow start
but picked up rapidly with the one-
two punchline of "Question and An-
Sswer," written by Dan King, and
"It's the Thought That Counts" by
Mike Tower.
"Not in Kansas" was a clever,
contemporary spoof of The Wizard of
Oz. Deb Congdon was especially
funny as Dorothy, the teenager on
the bad acid trip, and Melanie Mayo
was good as Auntie M, Q, and B.
But perhaps the standout sketch of
the act, and even the show, was
"Love Story," by Scott Clement. It
proved the old maxim "the less said

the better," as the sketch centered on
purely physical humor with no dia-
logue. This type of humor can be
difficult to pull off, but the Com-
pany proved its talent and depth in
this ensemble sketch.
The second act was a "first" for
the Company - it ran continuously
with segues given during one sketch
for the next. Some of the transitions
were weak, but others were well-done
and clever - the man with comedy
sketches for sale (Jon Glaser) was

especially funny.
The second act, like the first,
started off on shaky ground but
picked up in midstream. What col-
lege student wouldn't appreciate the
pontificating intellectuals of Eric
Steinhauer's "Existential Saccharine"
who couldn't understand why the
philosophy professor (Jeff Peters)
felt the need to give happy endings
to The Stranger and Crime and
Punishment.. Or what about "Fred
Jones ... Mall Cop," by Mike

Tower, the thrilling tale of Fred and
his imaginary friend as they fight
crime and litter in a suburban mall.
The evening ended with a bang (or
maybe a roar) with Steinhauer's
"Welcome to Camp Massacre," a
look at "mass murder by power tools
in a summer camp" films. All the1
proper ingredients were there - the1
foot locker stuffed with body parts,
the slightly eccentric camp caretakerI
who likes to carry rakes, the woman
who goes skinny-dipping in the lake,

and the people wandering into the
woods at night -"without flash-
lights of course."
The production was well-paced,
thanks to directors Jon Hein and
Matt Schlein, and producers Tim
Snyder and Melanie Harrison. The
continuous second act could have
been quite a pitfall but turned out to
be effective and funny.
Aside from a few weak moments,
the Comedy Company's "really, re-
ally big" production was reaUy, re-
ally entertaining. Good show!

Records were the darlings of the Winter
Half Pint - Olympics. Their pins, T-shirts, and
reggae single were the hottest items
Victory on the Olympic market.
RAS The reception of the Jamaican
Half Pint's latest release reminded bobsledding team deftly demonstrates
me of an interview with the Jamaican the "American" attitude towards that
Olympic bobsledding team I read re- island country and its music. In the

According to the Ann Arbor News
(February 12, 1988), Michigan has
been chosen as a target for Soviet Bloc
and Chinese espionage agents. The
FBI states, "the University of Michi-
gan performs top-secret government
research in which 'hostile foreign agents'
have an interest."
GBC Shredmaster shredders, avail-
able from Communications Electronics
Inc. have kept more documents confi-
dential than any other brand in history.
If you're working on thermonuclear
weapons design, binary nerve gas de-
livery systems, cryptographic or com-
munications security systems, strategic
defense initiative or other projects under
DoD sponsorship, CEI recommends the
GBC cross-cut 200 high security shred-
der. This shredder meets federal speci-
fication FF-S-001169 for the destruc-
tion of top-secret, secret, confidential,
cryptographic and COMSEC materials.
Think about it. Today, your trash is
packed with vital information. It pro-
vides every 'competitor, disgruntled
employee or foreign agent with a data
reservoir that could deal an irreparable
blow to your mission. You need to
make sure this damaging data is totally
destroyed - before it falls into enemy
hands. The 1987 Industrial Security

GBC offers shredders for every securi-
ty need. Choose a shredder that digests
dozens of sheets at once, or one that
pulls in a stream of EDP paper. GBC
offers personal-size shredders that fit
right under your desk - or high-volume
conveyor-belt shredders that can accept
piles of paper. You can protect yourself
against industrial espionage and against
liability under the Federal Privacy Act
with GBC shredders. All GBC equip-
ment is designed to deliver years of
quiet, trouble-free service.
To complement your security system,
Communications Electronics Inc. also
stocks Sony video surveillance systems
including the new EVT-801 time lapse
video recorder which can store over 16
days of video evidence.
Since Michigan has been targeted by
hostile intelligence agents who may be
observing, analyzing and evaluating
your activities and operations, now is
the time to enhance your operational
security effort. Reduce the opportunity
of a hostile agent or competitor gaining
access to your classified material with a

Ann Arbor and the University of
Michigan draw more than students
and scholars, according to the
state'sNo. 2 FBI official.
Soviet Bloc and Chinese espio-
nage agents "have very carefully
chosen Michigan as a target," said
Joseph J. Jackson, assistant agent
in charge for Michigan. Because of
that, he said, the state's comple-
ment of FBI counter-intelligence
agents is the nation's seventh larg-
Ws.
'"Sples out here in the breadbas-
ket of democracy? Yeah, that's ex-
actly what I mean," Jackson told a
group in Saginaw earlier this week.

Jackson, 45, is a former U.S. Se-
cret Service agent who joined the
FBI in 1969 and worked as a special
agent in Peoria, II.. Washington,
D.C., and New York City.
Now stationed in Detroit, Jack-
son oversees Michigan investiga-
tions of kidnappings, extortions,
major property and government
crimes, along with international
and domestic terrorism.
The University of Michigan per-
forms top-secret government re-
search in which "hostile foreign
agents" have an int rest, he said.
About six years Io, FBI activi-
ties in Ann Arbor were questioned
when U-M professors became con-
cerned about the bureau's inquir-
ies into the activities of a visiting

Russian scholar on campus.
Jackson said that federal investi-
gators have exposed professors at
Hope college and Wayne State Uni-
versity as foreign agents who sup-
plied sensitive information to the
Soviet Bloc.
FBI spokesman John Anthony
supported Jackson's comments
this morning.
"There are numerous corpora-
tions in Michigan that do business
with the U.S. government that are
prime targets for bostile foreign
agents." he said.
He called Ann Arbor "one of the
areas in the state of Michigan that
we are concerned about" because
