Autumn is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than with comedians who are truly legendary? (Okay maybe with a big slice of pumpkin pie, but that was rhetorical, Delta Burke).
To start our Comeback Show right, we invited NYC musician Aubrey Hairston to perform our very first theme song!
He started out street, but breakaway pants revealed the joyful goofball within. We blended Full House, 80s cartoons and The Great Depression into one catchy melody that the crowd enjoyed in an energetic live performance. We just laid down the official vocals and re-vamped the lyrics, so check it out soon on myspace.
Before she goes sunless tanning in the California Comedy Festival, newly engaged host Laura Mannino conducted this mighty fine lineup:
Dan Nainan and
Stuckey and Murray
along with our featured guests: Moses and Maurice the Landlord!
Laura warmed up the room with cubicle secrets and office antics, and a healthy dose of passive-aggressiveness. THANKS!!
While Charlton Heston tests his Poli-grip on a corn cob, the original Moses came down from the mountain to share the novella he just wrote. Those who were fans of his more famous works did not want to hear their leader go in a new direction and felt free to heckle, Bible-style. Free Birdeth!
Abbi demonstrated the necessity of the proper terrarium when you can't take your tiny dog shopping with you.
Celebrity Sighting! Several members of the troupe Impending Moustache stopped by to take a break from performing sketch so they could watch a little.
Often appreciated, never duplicated Mike Dobbins strolled through an invisible park and offered his jokes the way cult members offer you flowers, with full conviction and a dab of crazy sauce. It was his first time at the show and the first time a 9 year old decided to linger impatiently at the window. He won her over by listing deadly diseases. Some people are just good with kids.
Taking time off from ignorning tenants, Maurice Fry, the landlord of all of Brooklyn, brought in his pay-puh and spit knowledge on his favorite articles.
Representing Hoosier excellence (by association) Dan Nainan also made his first trip down to The Living Room. He took time off the road to educate our crowd about interracial relationships --those obvious (Abbi-Luke) and less obvious (Vin-Diesel).
The dynamic duo Stuckey and Murray were the perfect end to an already tremendous show. They made Living Room history by rocking out on guitars and got the whole room feeling good, just like a woman should.
Mike Dobbins became our glorious Funniest Comedian of All Time! We should have given oven mitts for the sizzling hot poster he won complete with Luke and Abbi's autographs.
Bring your scrunchie collection to our next show September 28th!
