Friday and Saturday To-Do: The Main Thing's 'Arkansanity'

THE MAIN THING'S 'ARKANSANITY'
8 p.m. The Joint. $20.

The in-house funny folks over at The Joint — a trio known as The Main Thing — are back with another original two-act comedy poking a little good-natured fun at The Natural State through the cracked lens that is The Fertle Family of the charming, fictional hamlet known as Dumpster, Ark.

The Fertles starred in the recent Main Thing productions "Last Night at Orabella's" and the follow-up "Weiner Day at the Rollercade." Their latest creation, "Arkansanity," is a collection of sketches and songs, at least one of which will feature the Fertles.

I've got to cop to the fact that I haven't yet made it over to see The Main Thing yet, but everyone I've spoken with has told me that it's truly, side-splittingly hilarious while also being appropriate for all ages and levels of uptightness. So you can bring your kids or your parents or your Republican Missionary Baptist mother-in-law or your wacky vegan liberal great aunt and they'll all get some chuckles.
