Check out this article about Delusions of Spandex in the DC Fringe Fest:

"Last week we visited one production because the name sounded funny, because there were no wigs or tacky costumes in the publicity photo and because the theater was air-conditioned ( crucial, folks). "Dorks on the Loose: It I Awkward," at the Warehouse, turned out to be a gem. It's the brainchild of Phaea Crede, 26, and Becca Jones, 27, who run a monthly sketch-comedy show on New York's Lower East Side under the name Delusions of Spandex. Both have training in theater and performance, including time in classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade, but "Dorks" is refreshingly un-highbrow: Over six sketches, the ladies skewer cellphone dependence (that sketch was originally written in a bar, the pair tells us by phone from New York), that "scourge on society" known as the hipster and "women's news." Where Jones is giddy, Crede is deadpan; it adds up to an exuberant 30 minutes. "Dorks on the Loose: It I Awkward" is Saturday at 3 p.m. and midnight. $15. Warehouse Beyond, 1017 Seventh St. NW."
