Show 25: Summer Blowout!
The Living Room is hibernating for a couple of months (as you can see on our performance schedule to the left), but we're putting some great ideas into the slowcooker so we can serve up an even better quality show. We're also coming back with our very own theme song by New York musician Aubrey Hart! So if you're wondering, "Whatever happened to predictability? The milk man, the paper boy, even t.v." then join us in the fall and find out.
Speaking of a Full House, we had one! We had people in from D.C., Baltimore, and even Indiana come out to party with us and support our last show of the summer. Abbi's college buddy Mike was the Honorable Guest of Honor for the evening, and he brought his gaggle of girlfriends. He's like the Robert Palmer of Baltimore.
Abbi openend the show and introduced her mother.
They agreed on everything until her mom started nagging her, and it became time for her to leave. (We get more mileage out of a bad wig than Ricardo Montalban!)
Speaking of wonders of the world, check out our lineup!
Luke Thayer and
The Straight Men
Our host for the evening, Brendan Fitzgibbons launched the show with crowd pleasers like the topic of presidential assassination.
Liam McEneaney left quite an impression for his first trip to The Living Room! By the end of his set he got every woman in the room to agree never to go out with him.
With her famous head of curly hair, Carla Rhodes became an honorary family member of Abbi's. She re-introduced the world to her old Vaudevillian partner, Cecil.
Taking time off from promoting her film (in costume), A Mighty Heart,
Angelina Jolie came by to shed light on her baby collection, I mean family.
Pinch hitter Greg Tito went to bat on stage and hit a homerun! He even became our Funniest Comedian of All Time! Wait...that's for the end of this post.
Exclusive! You've seen him on Best Week Ever! You've seen him on CNN! Now the 13 year old genius Evan O'Dorney is having an interview at The Living Room! But this time he messed with the wrong reporter...
Lisa Kaplan also had her Living Room debut and talked about fashion and roommates. Bad fashion and worse roommates.
We had another guest sketch troupe throw down, this time in the form of The Straight Men...
teaching us the special code to read in case of an emergency. Like robot insubordination.
Luke Thayer closed the show with his masterful style and in-your-face comedy. It's something new he's trying. Actually getting in the face of an audience member.
There's our winner! Last one of the season, meaning Greg Tito will hold this title longer than most!
See you September 14th!
