Approximately 3 Peters live on stage at The Bad Dog Theatre in Toronto

DVD Comes To Life in Sketch Comedy For Nerds

PET3RS The Complete 3rd Season is actually live sketch comedy revue masquerading as a DVD, presented by the Approximately 3 Peters and directed by Andrew Currie.

Peter Gal, Pete Hill and Ian MacIntyre are back with more off-the-wall antics. Tonight you can catch the final performance of a month-long Saturdays at The Bad Dog Theatre.

Sketches include Too Drunk, which (if you'll excuse the pun) takes the piss out of urinating in public after boozing it up at a bar. Shitty Beards is an audience participatory commentary on the perils of growing facial hair. Particularly memorable was the sketch about a father having The Talk with his daughter. Skip the DVD rental tonight and watch the real thing.

They parody all those extra bits they try to cram into DVDs these days and bring it to life on the stage. Extra fun bits like audio commentary with the creators is especially revealing.

PET3RS The Complete 3rd Season plays at The Bad Dog Theatre, 138 Danforth Ave. (one block east of Broadview subway station) tonight at 10:00 p.m. Tickets are $10.
