Nothing like a little COMICRELIEF to lighten up a Tuesday. I thought the theme entries were good choices, all fairly common answers, although I've never said or drank CRYSTALGEYSER. At least I've heard of it. We also had two Jewish comics and two African-American comics represented. The revealer was nice: I had no idea how the answers were related until I figured out 60A, and that's the best kind of revealer.
Beyond the theme, there were a number of reasonably good answers. I like the odd juxtaposition of CAMEROON next to the Japanese classic RASHOMON. MALAMUTE is another nice entry. I liked the clue for 40D: What some dieters do (YOYO), and the pair of Evita clues was okay, I guess. I'm not much of a fan of that musical or its composer. And I like SALAMI, especially in an Italian sub.
So much for the good stuff. 25 3-letter answers makes for a lot of DRIVEL. Some examples are: ANALYZER, IRONER (?! - how's that for an interrobang?), SANELY. But the worst of all deserves its own paragraph.
35D: Antiquity, in antiquity: ELD. I just don't see how this could have been allowed. The clue is cute, the word unnecessary. If the constructor had changed the first letter to O, you would have had "old" and "one", which is always preferable in my eyes to the random direction clue/answer pair. You could have done alt/ane/cut, although I don't love the chemical suffix much. You could have done cue/ole/one. All sorts of possibilities, without resorting to "eld". Blah.
Oh, by the way, I didn't mind the ancient Leopold AUER or Franz LEHAR, but I can see how others might complain.
So overall, it was okay, but could have been much better. I'm sounding like Rex Parker. Oh, dear.
