I always enjoy BNW's shows, but I thought this one was especially brilliant. As usual, the topic in the title only loosely inspires the skits, but they are generally themed around current events like the midterm elections (local politics in particular), immigration, the environment, and popular culture (I'm won't say more than that so I don't anything away!). If you are looking for a fun evening, see this show! (go to the last show of the night and stick around for the free improv after!)
