IndyFringe review: The Cool Table 

Young adult humor at its finest, The Cool Table is versatile sketch comedy that is intelligent, unique and cutting. The troupe uses subtle wit and exceptional phrasing of dialogue to manufacture comedy that is self-confident in its substance, without a gimmick. It is refreshingly simple in its lack of any heavy motifs or social commentary. The troupe seems to be perfectly self-aware of what it is: youthful scene-based comedy for the sake of entertainment. Though the performers look to be some of the youngest at Fringe, they are also the most professional of any I saw in the opening weekend, maintaining character in absurd situations and keeping the fourth wall intact. The only let-down is that their skits are on the short-end of the sketch length spectrum, and lack real development; I found myself intrigued by scenarios on stage that were cut down in their prime by the dimming of lights. Friday, 6:30 p.m.; Saturday, 1:30 p.m.; Sunday, 10:30 p.m.
