Will Scorsese win best director, and if he does, will he pluck his eyebrows? Can Penelope Cruz overpower Helen Mirren for best actress? Anything can happen when South Floridas longest-running improv troupe parodies Hollywoods biggest night of the year. Laughing Gas presents its third annual Academy Aweirds show at the Main Street Playhouse. The event pokes fun at popular cinema while delivering a hilarious night of audience-inspired improvisations balanced with sketch comedy.
In honor of the night, Laughing Gas will reward all Oscars. If your name is Oscar (unless youre a grouch), you can see the show for free. Dont forget to thank the Academy. The spooftastic yukfest hits the stage tonight at 11:00 p.m., and unlike at some other comedy shows -- there is no age restriction or drink minimum.
Fri., Feb. 23, 11 p.m.
