Just a few hours south in sister city Austin, you can’t swing a recycled, naturally dyed, hand-knit, multi-use grocery/sleeping bag without knocking down six to 14 sketch comics. Try it, it’s fun to do. Especially outside of Wheatsville Co-op, where they have extra-weakened soy legs. Here in Dallas, we experience the opposite. With the exception of a few plucky crews of Dallas Comedy House grads, there’s a drought of improvised groupthink. Fourth Wall Comedy is out to change that by covering all available territory. The troupe advertises a blend of improv, sketch and music — which together sounds unappetizing, but remember: So does chicken and waffles, and we all know that shit’s delicious. Sample a taste of musical sketchprov when Fourth Wall flexes at Ozona Grill and Bar (4615 Greenville Ave.) on Saturday. Doors are at 8:30 p.m. and tickets cost $10. Secure a seat in advance by calling 214-265-9105.
