Three Dollar Bill gives us something we've been sorely lacking: a quality sketch group. While the troupe's members often flirt dangerously with a thin line between cheese and enthusiasm, their best skits are bold and cutting. At their worst, they can be redundantly topical (e.g. numerous kitschy jabs at AIG and the economy), and with only a small handful of performers, the range of characters is limited. Yet they have a charming professionalism and eclectic scope of material that can appeal to anyone from the ages of 15-50. Their intermittent appeal to various audiences exists at the cost of a focused niche of humor. Their sketches create a mixed reaction that feels like watching a contrasting highlight reel of a gaudy Nickelodeon sitcom and National Lampoon
(when it used to be good). Fridays through March 27 at 10 p.m. 17+.
