How many times do we have to tell you to improve your life by seeing the deeply strange, deeply intelligent comedy duo called the Cody Rivers Show? We’ve given them a Genius Award. We’ve sung their praises in the paper. What do you want, an invitation written in gold leaf and ecstasy? They play with language, your expectations, and their bodies—they’re fantastic dancers—in short sketches that disorient you, then reorient you, and leave you grateful for the new place they’ve left you. They have a new show as part of this year's Seattle Sketchfest. Just see it already. (Theater Off Jackson, 409 Seventh Ave S, www.sketchfest.org, 7 pm, $15)
