“A Clown Car Named Desire”
Let’s be honest, who doesn’t enjoy a good hipster-mocking? For a pitch-perfect lesson in how to do it right, there’s a scene in the current Second City e.t.c. revue, “A Clown Car Named Desire,” in which three American Apparel employees (played by Brooke Breit, Mike Kosinski and Chris Witaske) prance and slouch around the stage, carefully circling each other and playing a game of hipster oneupmanship that starts out funny and slowly builds into what surely must be one of the most hilarious (and perhaps longest) scenes ever to grace the Second City e.t.c. stage.
