In the last year, the folks at ComedySportz Houston, late on Saturday nights, have been recreating some classic stories in oddball ways. They turn to the audience for suggested replacements in character occupations, props, and settings, and then improvise a staged adaptation of the tale in question. Think Star Wars, but with mops instead of light sabers, Luke Skywalker’s a pop star, and Darth Vader’s suffering from a massive head cold.
