The Entertainment Committee is proud to announce a departure from our usual fare. On February 16 we will host a night of comedy the likes of which you have never seen and will not want to miss.And what is Ms. Tamuro's take on the Iraq situation? Her theatre group, Sin Titulo, provides a helpful explanation of her show, "Axis of Comedy":
Ms. Sumiko Tamuro, who last year brought us the well-received performance of Samuel Beckett's "Play," is now back with a three-act comedy show that is sure to send you howling. A combination of standup comedy, music and film, and a one-act play, you will be treated to political satire related mainly to Iraq.
You will not want to miss this very timely performance.
“Axis of Comedy" satirically alludes to President Bush's all-too-famous "Axis of Evil."This is the sort of fare that our unbiased professional journalistic community finds amusing.
We had once hoped for world peace after the end of the cold war, but current events inform us otherwise. America's demeanor reminds us of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Emperor's New Clothes." Japan, of course, is tailing behind the emperor like a page holding his imaginary mantle.
Events in real life are at times cruel, foolish, and absurd, more tragic and comedic than theatre itself. Sin Titulo's comedy show allows its audience to laugh away some if only for an evening of our world's absurdity.
