Scenes from the Background of a Different Play

 

Review


Brigsdon Trelmont is the "Chosen One"—humanity’s last hope against evil—but this story isn’t about him. Scenes from the Background of a Different Play is a unique take on the sketch comedy genre, where each sketch is somewhat related to each other, if only barely. While Trelmont battles the forces of evil in the background, we instead see the stories of the people he passes on the street or the shows he watches on TV. It’s weird, wacky, and full of mysterious bags of ham. The sketches range from parodies of Star Trek and James Bond to Mark Knopfler playing in the studio, and each one is more than likely to get at least a few good laughs out of the crowd. That, coupled with a few decently timed callbacks, makes Scenes from the Background of a Different Play a fun hour of sketch comedy. It’s not the best sketch comedy by any means, but it’s definitely worth checking out. Reviewed by Alex Sorochan.
