Show 7: A Shot in the Dark
A mess of kids crowded around the shop’s window this week proving parental supervision is at an all-time low in the city. Luke wore a shirt with Peter Sellers on the front in honor of the legend’s birthday. He kicked off the evening with a true tale of getting (old) man-handled, and prepared everyone for a great night. The stars of this week’s show were:
Lance Weiss and
The 'tweens went home for dinner (the call of the tater tot) and Matt Little explored the hilarious meaning of couple hood. This week’s Rental Review was by Tosha Styles, a temp with other aspirations who ultimately gave Finding Neverland a thumb down because Johnny Depp does not play a pirate.
Lance Weiss learned a couple of new languages from an enthusiastic audience member and gave an animated performance, treating everyone to high-fives on his way off stage.
Classic comedian Vaudeville Lou paid a visit to read his take on what’s in the papers today.
Becky Ciletti followed with a dynamite set and engaged the crowd with Internet observations.
Abbi closed the show with a 1-Minute Workout flexing her thoughts on public television and the programs made possible by viewers like YOU.
Since Lance Weiss is indisputably the Funniest Comedian of All Time, we honored him with the 2004 Zagat guide to dining in Lower Manhattan. We just hope the restaurants in that book still exist.
The Monty Hall audience award was offered in the style of Let’s Make a Deal, and two coupons for sweets were traded for dental floss.
Take that, American Dental Association! And take your BFF to our next show on September 22nd!
