This Is Schadenfreude 

Wednesday, Feb 3 2010
If you wish to unite a crowd, invoke exes. Everyone hates an ex, and poof, the crowd is united, in hatred. At the new Valentine's-themed comedy show Wegent and Page Draw the Line, "it's complicated," in the parlance of our times, because the two performers, Sammy Wegent and Allison Page, are exes. Of each other. And they've broken up six times. And live together. (Thin wall syndrome made much worse!) If such a setup doesn't strike you as funny, you're probably in the middle of a bitter breakup, but think of it this way: At least you're not onstage trying to steal the spotlight from the bitch/dick. One thing Wegent and Page have in common is an admiration for classic comedy duo Mike Nichols and Elaine May — it may be all they have in common, but it's enough for us to want to watch.
