Four comedians anchor the weekly stand-up show The Business, and theyre all extremely smart and funny. Alex Koll has dramatic hair on his face and head, Sean Keane is bringin self-deprecation back, and Chris Garcia is mean and angry, yet somehow also gentle. But we bet they all hate Bucky Sinister, because Bucky is Mr. Popular. He cant help it: Everyone just loves Bucky, right away. People love him even more after they hear his sharp-edged, literary jokes, and plus he looks like a prettier version of Walter from The Big Lebowski, which only makes everyone love him yet more. Hes not like a dick about it or anything, but its gotta be annoying. Good thing the show always includes a few guest comics, to keep things from getting ugly: A recent Business featured Sammy Wegent, who somehow, somehow made ex-girlfriend and therapist jokes work, without even using very much misogyny. A special musical performance by hippie duo Rainbow Chair concluded the evening in a hail of charmingly faux-idiotic folk songs.
