Law Revue - A Review

"Is the Dean Emiritus gonna have to slap a bitch?"

Last night I ventured to the Norm theatre to partake in a night of the Bard as law students and professors humiliated themselves in various stages of lunacy. Actually, the shit was pretty tight. Ryan's sketches in particular were of TOP QUALITY, but, alas, were also a little too high brow for the drunken, rowdy crowd. One particularly good sketch involving pirates (what good sketch doesn't?), was all but ruined by a stupid fat fuck who couldn't shut his intoxicated pie hole. But I digress.

The acting was actually fairly decent, with Keith being a notable standout as Trump (I'm gonna Trump kill ya) and some other guy as Dean Curtis and Alex Trebek. Low notes included a misguided impersonation of a certain rambunctious first year - this may or may not lead to the impersonators death. I am undecided as of yet.

The lowest note had to be the musical numbers. The band, it must be said, was entirely competent. And the group numbers, although not very good, were at least done in a who gives a shit manner that made them forgivable. However, the "satirical" songs that took hit tunes and changed the lyrics so they were law related told a different story. To begin with, the singer who inexplicably did every song could not sing. I don't mean that she sang off key, although she did, or that she sang off time, although she did that too. No, I mean that her singing could be used by the U.S. government as a siege device. Her singing would bring about instant and unconditional surrender. It wasn't enough that her voice was like a million cat orgy - she had to yell into an already jacked up mike like she was play calling for the Superbowl. At the end of the song she even did a little jig, as if in acknowledgment of her mind-boggling suckitude. The most baffling part was the way people cheered and clapped whenever she shrieked another missed note, or yelled another forgotten phrase. I can only think of two reasons for this - that she is extremely popular, or that she is sleeping with everyone.

If the songs had at least been funny, the horror of her performance might have been overlooked. But the songs were straight versions of the originals, with the word "law" interspersed willy-nilly. She even sang with her eyes closed.

Missed the Superbowl ads because of a crappy Canadian feed?
