Serve by Expiration Goes Where The Office Fears to Shred

This sketch comedy show is about what those people in ties, khakis, and button-downs really get up to at work. Many of the sketches embrace topics that hit television shows like The Office only hint at — the joys of online porn, masturbation, and cursing out your superior. Yet even if it isn't exactly breaking new ground, the always-plucky Thunderbird Theatre Company keeps the hour-and-45-minute evening engaging by injecting its own brand of goofy fun. More often than not, the bits are amusing. Christopher P. Kelly literally throws himself into roles such as a sexually desperate co-worker and a bank robber-cum-aspiring playwright, and Jenni Gebhardt and Faith Aeryn are both ridiculous and touching as the incarnations of Super Mario Brothers and The Legend of Zelda, trying to cheer up an office drone who gets through his work day only by playing their games. It won't open your eyes to a whole new way of viewing your day job, but the Thunderbird gang presents the office staples we know and love with such verve and silliness that you will often find yourself chuckling along.
