Another triumphant return. These three Chicago-based comedians already have a fanbase in the Holy City thanks to past appearances at the Charleston Comedy Festival and Piccolo Fringe. They've set themselves apart by singing silly but skillful songs about errant penises and hopelessly old-fashioned dudes.
Get it right. In their newish song "The Opener," the trio introduces themselves, singing, "We do music and comedy, but we don't say music comedy, because that sounds lame." They go on to explain that Tim is shy and awkward, the group would fall apart without Tyler, and Sarah tends to try to fit too many syllables into songs.
More important. Although locals can count on hearing the Shock T's songs they've come to know and love, they'll also hear some newer ones, like "More Important," a tune about a 22-year-old baseball player who makes more money than 500 teachers.
