Tonight and tomorrow sees the return to the Brave New Workshop stage of the sketch comedy team of McWop and Kraut in The Smell of Laughter II--These Colors Don't Run. The company had a highly successful run last summer, and return in 2010 to bring yuks to the holiday weekend.

"It's an irreverent sketch comedy show," says Kyle Lenhoff, one of the show's producers and performers. "We've got something on the smart-phone craze, there's a Mr. Rogers parody, a sketch about post-apacolyptic babies (with puppets we made), and a bromance between two best friends that turns into a domestic dispute."
The show runs about an hour long with no intermission, and tickets are an eminently reasonable $10. Both shows are at 7:30 p.m.
"It's just zany and a little off-color," adds Lenhoff. "And not for the easily offended. Put it this way--I wouldn't want to bring my grandma to it."
We wouldn't think of it.
