THE MAIN THING: 'ELECTILE DYSFUNCTION'
8 p.m. The Joint. $20.
"Electile Dysfunction" is the newest two-act satire from The Main Thing, the resident comedy company at The Joint in North Little Rock. The Main Thing stars Joint owners Steve and Vicki Farrell and Brett Ihler and, as is apparent from the title, will skewer national politics and the upcoming presidential election, all through an Arkansas-specific lens.
According to a presser from the troupe, the show concerns a Little Rock family that can't see eye-to-eye on politics. They become minor celebrities after a local action news team turns its investigative eye on their disagreements.
I haven't been to check out The Main Thing yet, but I've heard very good things from several trusted sources. The Farrells aren't natives of Arkansas, but no less an authority than Times publisher Alan Leveritt told me that they have an uncanny grasp on the nuances of Central Arkansas politics. He raved about their last show, "Little Rock and a Hard Place," and said he and his father-in-law were in stitches.
