Last night, I went with a very lovely grrl to see Wil Wheaton perform at the Acme Comedy Theater. I admit, the main attraction for us was the chance to oogle Wil Wheaton's goodies up close, but we were pleasantly surprised by the fact that the Acme Comedy players are all very funny.
The approximately two-hour show consisted of 16 sketches. The main highlight for the Wil Wheaton fans among us was the sketch entitled "Shut Up Wesley", which was written by, you guessed it, Wil Wheaton himself. In the sketch, he rather eloquently lampoons those Star Trek fans who seem to think that Star Trek is *real* and not just a TV show. Of course, when he utters that timeless phrase, "Captain, one to beam up", it takes me back to a place of teenage crushes and tight red Starfleet uniforms, but I digress.
If you are in the Los Angeles area, I highly recommend paying a visit to the Acme Comedy Theater. Even if Wil Wheaton isn't performing that night, the other very talented and very funny players will keep your craving for comedy satisfied. Of course, if he *is* performing that night, pray to the deity of your choosing that they are doing the sketch entitled "What Dreams May Come" that evening, because it involves Wil Wheaton's very perky ass gyrating under a blanket. Now that's a memory I'll cherish for a lifetime.
