Another Fifty-Five Minutes with Loren & Howard
Howard Lieberman and Loren Niemi; Minneapolis
ComedySportz Arena: 721 Mass Ave. Loren and Howard's satyr act gets old
— and sometimes downright uncomfortable. In the improv tradition but with prepared monologues, the two storytellers send around a fishbowl full of topics, and when it lands in someone's lap, he or she reads out the topic on stage. The two are able enough storytellers, but Friday's iteration of the show got off to a jolting, obtuse start when Loren, discussing "tattoos," went right from describing a rose tattoo located near a girlfriend's nether regions, to talking, in hushed tones, of the serial numbers stamped on the arm of a concentration camp survivor.
