T H E A T E R   R E V I E W  -  The Aftermath  -  Blow Comedy Company


Exploding with laughter in the form of sketch comedy is the Blow Comedy Company’s production of The Aftermath   


LOS ANGELES, CA - Directed by Benjamin Michael Friedman, The Aftermath explores real life awkward situations and issues that the everyday person should be able relate to. The ensemble originally brainstormed and wrote some thirty scenes, and trimming each performance to contain at least 15 sketches. While there are scenes repeated throughout the run, each performance will contain one or two new scenes to keep the show fresh and unpredictable.

This attractive ensemble, consisting of Camille Bennett, Danny Hamm, Derek Mehn, Sarah Tiana, and Beau Wilson, literally bounce off the walls with high energy never giving the audience a chance rest in between sketches.

The performers make well thought out choices in their acting and writing abilities. Sarah Tiana excels in her characterization of a nerdy over confident high school girl determined to get in with the in-crowd. Camille Bennett delights and shocks in her cheerleader camping scene. Other audience pleasing scenes include the Christian Christmas Carolers, a satirical look at the employees of Abercrombie & Fitch, a Broadway tribute to the homeless that Les Miserables fans will adore, and a cute Jacuzzi scene that turns into a ‘Boys Gone Wild’ montage.





What works in this production is the teamwork displayed from beginning to end. Ensemble comedy works best when each member brings their best to the plate and are able to share the spotlight. It’s that ambitious sign that indicates these people deserved to be noticed. So go see The Aftermath. What’s guaranteed is a definite party atmosphere and five talented comedy performers ready to entertain.

Presented by the Blow Comedy Company, The Aftermath performs at the Sierra Stage, located at 1444 North Sierra Bonita, in Hollywood, CA. Running through February 19th, performances are Saturday nights at 10pm. Tickets $10 with an RSVP and $12 for general admission at the door.- Adrian Rennie
