More irreverent skits include PHAMALY Jeopardy with categories like tasteless jokes about Helen Keller, incontinence supplies and the game Cripple or a Road Cone, wherein contestants guess which choice a clue describes. Youll also hear a parody of Andrew Lloyd Webber songs, including a satire of Jerry Lewis and his telethon. Some of it is just a really honest look at living with disabilities like getting up a wet ramp when the wheelchair starts to slide, says Weiss. The most surprising thing is their sense of humor about these situations.
Tales opens tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Pluss Theatre in the Mizel Arts and Culture Center, 350 South Dahlia Street; it runs again tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. Admission is a suggested $10 donation. For more information, call 303-575-0005 or go to www.phamaly.org.
