RECKLESS! Opens Tonight at Shadowbox Live!

Aaahhh, spring! The time to open the doors and windows and shake off that cabin fever! And nothing is a faster cure than getting wild and crazy with Shadowbox Live's newest sketch comedy and rock 'n' roll show, Reckless, opening tonight, March 26th at 503 S. Front Street!

Reckless features two hours of wild original sketch comedy and thrilling rock 'n' roll music that's sure to get your blood pumping and your energy worked into a frenzy.

"What's great about this show is we could go absolutely anywhere with it," says Shadowbox Live Head Writer Jimmy Mak. "From sensitive topics to just being completely off the wall, the subject of Reckless behavior gave us the freedom to run the gambit. And what we've produced is a ridiculous mix of silly, smart, and sometimes unexpected topics that are a whole lot of fun!"

Tap into that rash, uncontrolled side, and get Reckless at Shadowbox Live!

Sketches from Reckless include:

Vinnie's Playhouse - premeired in Dirty Little Secrets, 2001 - What happens when a gangster hosts a children's TV show? Hilarity, that's what.

Ask Your Lawyer, Ask Your Girlfriend, Ask Your Drug Dealer - Sometimes the simplest answers to our problems are right there to find. That doesn't mean they're the smart answers, just simple.

Identity Theft Retribution Program - Identity theft is a real problem, but we've got the solution!

Job App - Interviewing for a new job can be tough, but explaining away all the skeletons in your social media closet is even tougher.

Pulled Over - Racism in law enforcement is a hot button topic right now, but what if it was turned on it's head?

Rebel Without a Clue - Teenage rebellion these days just isn't what it used to be, and these Guidance Counselors are trying like hell to change that!

Rock a Bye Baby - Have you ever actually paid attention to nursery rhymes? They're freaking creepy!

Test Results - We blindly trust our doctors and medical tests, even if the results seem a "touch" out of place.

The Flessel Scandal - Let's be honest, today's politicians are nothing more than entertainment for the masses, and it's getting more ridiculous by the day.

Ye Olde Medical Treatments - Some of those old timey medical treatments were just bizarre. Ever wonder who was the first voice of reason?

YOLO - Oh, the age of the internet! It allows anyone to be who they want to be, or who their friends want them to be.

Life in the Fast Lane by The Eagles

Old Mr. Heffer by 4 Non Blondes
