Talk about burying the lead! The Variety Hour Happy Hour is launching a comedy show with a party afterward, but you wouldn't know it unless you read their promotion to the very end.

For the last year, the Variety Hour has been performing old-timey type vintage-TV-style shows with comedy sketches, live music, special guests, interviews, games and fabulous prizes. The shows have something for everybody – from zany to thoughtful. Because it's a variety show. That's why.

At 8 p.m., Friday, May 2, (May the 2nd be better!) the Variety Hour is having what it is eloquently calling "Variety Hour Happy Hour Anniverseganza II: The Varieting." From Facebook:

"…see a night of sketches, songs, and laughs, and maybe you'll just find your true purpose in life, we don't know, we're not your psychiatrist, we can't help you with that! But we can help you with the funny! Cuz that's how we do!"

As always, the show is in the Arcade Theatre of the Underground Collaborative, 161 W. Wisconsin Ave., lower level. 

Tickets are $15 at the door and $10 in advance. And the show is promising a "Super Secret Special Guest!"

But here's the kicker: Not until the last line of the Facebook post, do we learn that this celebration show also turns into a dance party. So now we've told you. You're welcome. Bear that in mind as you're dressing for the show. Wear appropriate shoes. And for the love of Pete, put on some deodorant.
