How many funny people can come from one family? Dane Cook's family is 0-for-1, but if you're a Sedaris, there's more than enough hilarity to go around. Only siblings Amy and David Sedaris could pull off a play about cheese balls, a llama, a Pilgrim-themed restaurant and an Amish-like religious sect called the "Squeamish." If I didn't have you convinced at llama, then there's no hope for you. The title character, Squeamish Sister Liz, runs away from her home in Cluster Haven when she's demoted to "chive-picker" at the cheese ball business. Liz's life is peachy until her new job goes from family-friendly to Hooters. There's a cheesy ending, of course. Ba-dum-chh! I'm here all week, folks. Tip your waitress. Catch The Book of Liz Thursdays through Saturdays through October 3 at the UTD University Theatre. Thursday nights are free. For tickets and information, call the box office at 972-883-2552.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Oct. 1. Continues through Oct. 10, 2009
