*LOS ANGELES – An L.A. based African-American sketch comedy troupe will present Slow Children Crossing, a high and low brow, political, satirical, scatological, and musical show beginning April 10 for six weeks at King King in Hollywood (7pm, 6555 Hollywood Boulevard).
Mixing multi-media with live sketches the group creates a party-like atmosphere asthey lampoon everyone from Libyan President Muammar Qaddafi to U.S. President Barack Obama.
Consisting of two men, three women, including Bret Butler (Adult Swim’s “Sealab: 2021”), L.A. theatre veteran Alem Sapp (“How High”), Destini Meshack (BET’s “Played by Fame”), Tiffany Thomas (“The Boondocks”), and Saudia Rashed (“The New Guy”), Slow Children Crossing is being presented by acclaimed writer and filmmaker Ralph Farquhar (“Married with Children,” “The Parkers,” and “Moesha”).
Hoping to bring a new voice to the sketch world with their slightly crooked perspective during a 90-minute set, Slow Children Crossing will run Sundays at 7 p.m. beginning April 10 through May 15 and tickets are $20. For more information, please log onto www.slowchildrenxing.com.
