What's the funniest damn thing you've ever seen on television? The commercials. Specifically, the ones that aren't trying to be funny, but try instead to sell you a load of crap in three easy payments -- the Ginsu knives, slicing-dicing machines and spotless cleaning solutions of the late-night surf. The professional turf pioneered by Ron Popeil and Billy Mays, infomercial smooth-talk and hyperventilation are the very stuff of the unintentional funny.
And that's what's so hilarious about But, Wait! There's More!, a weekly improv showdown featuring a rotation of five different house teams competing at Bovine Metropolis Theater. Just try to walk out of the place afterward without coveting some piece of trash you'll never use.
