Eight things that would’ve been even funnier had I been stoned at Atlas Theatre’s production of “Reefer Madness”

This would be funnier if we were stoned.

1. Getting lost in North Las Vegas while killing an hour before the show. Why is that adorable, drooling pit bull not on a leash in this dead-end cul-de-sac festooned with abandoned trailers as night falls all around us?

2. My theater chair squeaks!

3. “He throws me down the stairs/But deep inside he cares.”


Reefer Madness
Through October 4; Friday-Saturday, 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m.
BackStage Theatre at CSN, 3200 E. Cheyenne Ave.

4. Fleshy naked simulated orgy. Fleshy. Is that a word? Fllleshy. Flesh-EEE. Full-esh-ee. Fulleeeessshee.

5. “Listen to Jesus, Jimmy/I’m the face on the shroud of Turin ... Listen to Jesus, Jimmy!/Do I need to test your urine?”

6. Ramen.

7. A wig. A wittle wiggy.

8. “Reefer madness ... Creeping like a communist, it’s knocking at our doors/Turning all our children into hooligans and whores!”
