The final day of SketchFest has come and gone. I laughed, I cried, and my friend won some Burt’s Bees lip balm in a trivia game.

Vampeero Productions’s musical sketch revue, Over-Served, is a well harmonized, amusing tribute to the highs and lows of the food service industry. Beginning with a chorus of outcries from restaurant archetypes—harried server, asshole customer, Hispanic line cook, etc.—the show spiced up familiar situations with memorable one-liners. In one sketch, waitstaff added a little umbrage to a birthday song, singing, “We’re surprised that you have room for cake with all that dick you eat.” In another, the lament went, “I can’t afford to turn on the heater because I got my degree in theater.” Justifying the Vampeero moniker, a vampire made a gory appearance in a sketch about a burrito assembly line.
