On the Lookout

Comedian Beata Bakhtiari takes after Sarah Silverman: She's going there. “I don't really have a problem with child abuse, as long as it's not your child,” she says, and somehow, somehow, it's funny. (Is anyone else's brain screaming, “It's funny because it's true!” and then getting offended at itself?) She also jokes about Rwandan genocide and abortion — her mom's. Bakhtiari, Nicole Calasich, Susannah Freedman, Kelli Karsten, Emily Heller, and Emily Sims are Boner Patrol, whose new show “Slumber Party” promises, “We are good at comedy.” All-women comedy troupes are rare; those who eat farts for dinner are rarer. Hide your boner.
Fridays, Saturdays, 10 p.m. Starts: April 3. Continues through April 11, 2009
