The Comedy Mystery Mutants took Sunday’s Bumbershoot audience on a tour of Seattle’s weird underbelly of comedy with a mix of sketch, video, music and stand-up comedy at the Leo K. Theatre.
Led by MC Albert Kirchner the show’s highlights included a display of gravity-defying jumps and twists from Extreme Gene (played by comedian Jeff Mackin). Extreme Gene is a new breed of athlete practicing extreme skipping.

Seattle stand-up comedian Brendan Kelley talked about time travel and what he’d do if given the option to travel back in time (spoiler alert: kill Hitler).
“If I had a time machine I would go back in time and kill Hitler, but I’d probably wait until he killed a few people,” Kelley said. “If I’m gonna go through the trouble I want some recognition.”
