CRASH! What was that? Why it's the sound of a mirror breaking--from laughing too hard at our ninth show a.k.a. the Friday the 13th Spooktacular MWAHAHAHA! What a rough night for our hostess. Poor Abbi...as if being trampled on the subway weren't bad enough, she later suffered from E.Coli-induced stomach cramping, a hump back, a unibrow, and lost her coveted break-out role to Angelina Jolie! Ever the trooper, she adamantly refused to believe in bad luck. Then she died.
We had a great line-up of brave souls, a great crowd, and nary a black cat in the room. Performing before the lucky, upside-down Living Room sign were:
Laura Mannino and
Nick busted out of the gate with plenty of energy and helped us ward off evil spirits with raucous laughter. Lang followed with hilarious (yet disturbing) anec dotes on mother-daughter bonding.
Like seconds on dessert, Laura's second time at the show was tastier than the first. She even gave us all a tip on smart-shopping for costumes this Halloween...
...and Tom Jones swung his pelvis like a weather vane to deliver the weekend meteorology report.
On his Confession Tour '06, Mark Foley read the news and foresaw the consequences of the sinners there within.
Speaking of repeat offenders, Matt McCarthy came back for his second appearance on the show! With his wicked Nosferatu fingers, he singled out various audience members until they howled with laughter (the full moon helped), riffing on European pop hits and scary movie contradictions.
Every audience member got a prize for daring to come to the show on this most doomed of autumn evenings. But only ONE person walked away as the Funniest Comedian of All Time, and that genius was Lang Fisher!
Maybe her prize will give her a hint at a Halloween costume to wear to our HALLOWEEN SCARE-AVAGANZA on October 27th. Everyone is invited to dress up, and we'll have even more fun in store...
Do come. It will be a SCREAM! (What? These guys think it's funny.)
