Mister Sinus: The Karate Kid

Last night, I got out to the next-to-last night of the Mister Sinus production of "The Karate Kid". They did an acceptable job of pointing out the funny, but there wasn't any really brilliant moment from the heckling that stands out in my mind. I think they relied a little heavily on adding "punk-ass" dialog to both Daniel and Mr. Miyagi, and the hint of a "happy ending" motivation of Mr. Miyagi's training was played over and over. There is some value to shock humor, but I think they play a bit to the obvious jokes; back when I did improv theater briefly at Georgia Tech, the instructor told us to throw away the first idea that came to your head, as the one that replaced it would be fresher and funnier.
