SynopsisJust in time for the 2008 Presidential race, Chicago’s own kevINda and Schadenfreude team-up for a night of edgy sketch comedy exploring politics, race, sex and modern life. Schadenfreude – derived from the German noun meaning “pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others” – has been performing sketch comedy for years. They have headlined the Chicago Improv Festival, performed at Lollapalooza and had their own self-titled radio program on Chicago Public Radio. The troupe has also performed at L.A.’s UCB Theater, HERE Arts in NYC and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Learn more about Schadenfreude at schadenfreude.net. Kevin Douglas and Inda Craig-Galván, collectively known as kevINda, have created a smart mix of racial and political satire. Their first revue as a sketch duo, These Coloreds Don’t Run, played at Donny’s Skybox Theatre in 2003. Since then, the duo has performed at C’est La Vie Drama, the Black Arts Initiative at HotHouse and the Acme Arts Building for Wordplay. Learn more about kevINda at kevINda.com.
