The Travesty boys—aka those besotted Langley Punks—are back! And this time they’re…well, this time the irreverent comedians are doling out the same old crap. But make no mistake: This is funny crap. Really funny crap. Tonight’s to-do features a showing of Travesty Films: From Here to Obscurity, the 1996 best-of flick that brilliantly captures the comedy troupe’s 25 years of acting stupid for the D.C. masses. The thoroughly madcap Obscurity contains such classic (and when I say “classic,” I mean black-and-white and fueled by Budweiser) comedy shorts as Hyattsville Holiday, plus the “semi-musical” Alcoholics Unanimous and no-holds-barred sitcom spoof The Travesty Show. Troupe spokesperson Dave Nuttycombe, whose day job just happens to be loitering around the Washington City Paper, will be on hand to talk audience members through the emotional parts. Bring Kleenex for tears inspired by both laughter and shame. At 9:30 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1831 14th St. NW. $5. (202) 667-7960. (Sean Daly)
