Oh, man. UCB’s new Maude team, Choir only has 19 subscribers, and that’s about to change real quick if they keep putting out sketches like this. A perfect mix of the simple and the absurdly complex, this piece, written by Jason Sweeten and starring Anna Callegari and Sarah Grace Welbourn, is an indictment against the oft-made argument that word play sketches are – inherently – lazy and unfunny. The very beauty of these additions to the cannon of comedy lies in an unabashed laziness in premise and an anything-but-lazy commitment to probing every possible angle of a seemingly simple, one-note joke. Go forth all ye word play writers, go forth and let these Sisters in Law be your misleading guides.
