Matt and Ben

As in Damon and Affleck. This fictional one-act, about two Harvard roommates who stumble into show business, is written and performed with deadpan hilarity by two women, Mindy Kaling and Brenda Withers. Yet it's not a sorority-house jape, but a sly and oddly touching satire on the arbitrariness of fame.
