The Aces is half comedy show and half anthropological investigation. In scene after scene, Shelley McLendon and Michael Fetters assume roles whose humor lies in their precisely captured familiarity: Now they're an elderly couple, bickering over who ate the last chocolate chip cheesecake bite; now she's an owl, and he's the blundering bird lover who just "rescued" her from a barn. This is a strange show to review, because under most circumstances, if a comedy show doesn't make you laugh, then it has failed. But McLendon and Fetters are incredibly assured, smart performers: I might not've laughed out loud, but I still quite enjoyed spending an hour with them. ALISON HALLETT
