Only three ideas in this sluggish evening are potentially funny, and uninteresting performances render them only slightly amusing: a sketch depicting the letter u caught in a stifling relationship with q, an ad for a cologne that keeps the girls away when a guy just wants to watch the game, and a series of bits in which people call on the “bullpen of life” when they want to avoid unwanted tasks or events. HippoHorseyDonkeyMonkey is yet another troupe of aspiring improvisers, and this is yet another sloppy, unoriginal attempt at sketch comedy that relies on easy targets, with predictably dull results. Through 12/17: Fri-Sat 8 PM. No show 11/18-11/19. Peter Jones Gallery, 1806 W. Cuyler, 773-472-9723. $10.
