Al and Jim's One Man Show
Alex Grindeland and James Boland attempt to occupy the same comedic space on Sunday.
Possibly the cleverest title for a show all year,Â Al & Jim’s One Man ShowÂ also sounds like kind of a clever idea for a show. The idea goes something like this: improv comics Alex Grindeland and James Boland take audience suggestions to create completelyÂ different improvised scenes—. Each one individually composes his own self-contained story. As the show progresses, the two worlds collide in a hopefully comic fusion. Sounds potentially quite good. Not as familiar with Boland, but Grindeland has shown considerable talent in various comedy shows includingÂ Rudolph the Pissed-Off ReindeerÂ andÂ 8-Bit Warrior. He also served as possibly the only redeeming factor of Bite Theatre’s debut showÂ Kill The Rich, Kill The Poor.
Al & Jim’s One Man ShowÂ runs Saturday, February 26thÂ at 10pm and February 27thÂ at 11:30 am. Both shows are $5. Both shows take place atÂ the Alchemist Theatre in Bay View.Â Â For reservations, callÂ 414-426-4169.
