The BEE Word 

When: Sat., Aug. 29, 10 p.m. 2009
Price: $6
An improvised spelling bee where the audience chooses the words. But wait, aren't all spelling bee contestants essentially improvising? Sure, if you can count a routine as improvised after years of rigorous training. Are Chinese gymnasts improvising? I'm not sure, but the point is that these comedians turned spellers haven't practiced nearly as much, so they might falter when we shout out challenging words like aerial, somersault, and pre-pubescent, but it will be funny when they fail. No one will cry or be accused of bringing shame to the nation.
