Pork Filled Players keep us laughing

by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

Spam-o-rama
Theatre Off Jackson
June 20, July 10-11


With so much to do this weekend, it being Pride and all, where will you get the extra time to go to the International District for some comedy and song? Don't know, dear reader, but trust me, should you decide to venture out of Capitol Hill and to Theatre Off Jackson for one of Seattle's oldest (and arguably most flexible and diverse) comedy groups, Pork Filled Players' new show, Spam-o-rama, it'll be well worth it.

The show is a combination of sketch comedy that deals with everything from interracial dating, racial stereotypes with a decidedly Asian focus and a bit of improv comedy from a new group, The Collective, to some funny song stylings by chanteuse Jennifer O'Brien (who was set to be on the bill with jazz great Greta Matassa at Tula's in Belltown when I saw the show last weekend).

Offering a quirky and often hilarious view on all of the above subjects and taking a poke at the current economy, veteran PFP members and a few fresh faces kept the capacity audience giggling and tittering during the one and a half hour show at Theatre Off Jackson. Also joining the group were members of University of Washington's sketch comedy group, The Collective, who though they had a rather slow start, were spot-on and incredibly funny to watch by the end of their improv routine using suggestions from the audience.

Also a little bonus of watching one of the female members of the group, a hippy, tall redhead that's been with the group for the last several shows I've seen, was her giving us all a little flash of her black thong undies when she bent over or danced around during one number. Refreshing to be sure, and something you probably won't see on any other Seattle stage, or at least not on the larger stages. And entirely engaging evening of quick-witted comedy that'll strike your funny bone more than once, and then there's lovely Jennifer O'Brien, who sang deliciously sharp and torchy songs about the wrongs and rights of her dating life. One hopes to see this talented performer grow and get even better in coming months, and certainly to watch her perform in future shows, on other Seattle stages.
