Show 28: More Drama for Your Mama

Photography by Aemiessence Fine Arts

Alas! Poor Yorik...your friend Hamlet would have fit in nicely since we had a mime, sketch troupes, a short film, and poetry, all in the name of comedy!
Rick Younger

Our twenty-eighth show marks the return of the fabulous Del! For her first time as the Living Room host, she led a remarkable lineup:

Mike Drucker
Impending Moustache
Abbi Crutchfield
Rick Younger and
Good Neighbor

with special guests Lukel Lukeau and Tim the Party Man!

Abbi Crutchfield
Abbi opened the show with interpretive dance during the theme song. Unfortunately, her dance partner insisted on lurking in the shadows, and she was left to convey a singing duo all alone.

Del took center stage and outshined our new spotlight!

Mike Drucker
Mike Drucker is celebrating the glory of his new girlfriend and trying to erase the memory of bad roommates.

Luke Thayer as Lukel Lukeau
In honor of the recent passing of famed French mime Marcel Marceau, his protoge, Lukel Lukeau reported the entire week's current events by miming to the melody of Debussy's Claire de Lune.
Luke Thayer as Lukel Lukeau
Needless to say he did a bit of juggling when conveying Pam Anderson.

Impending Moustache delivered two sketches:
Daniel Kelley and Emily Plumb of Impending Moustache
one about the helpfulness of crazy people...

Leah Rudick and Nick Leonard of Impending Moustache
...and the other about the craziness of helpful people.
There was laughter, tears, movement, and we're pretty sure everyone got hurt.

Abbi recalled the innocent days of middle school when she dated a guy who was nicknamed O.J. Simpson.
Abbi Crutchfield
Love is blind, y'all.

Tim the Party Man rolled in with his list of the top 12 things that keep a party rolling.
Luke Thayer as Tim the Party Man
With tips like pooping in house plants and calling the cops your party's sure to be reminiscent of the back alley in a bad neighborhood. Awww yeah.

Rick Younger
As the last stand-up comic of the night, Rick Younger became our headliner and gave a spoken word tribute to a life he could have lived if only he had been born a woman.

Beck Bennett, Nick Rutherford and Kyle Mooney of Good Neighbor
Good Neighbor closed out the show with a sketch on life-saving techniques and a short film about roommate loyalty. Maybe they could help Mike Drucker...

Winner!  Rick Younger
The winner of the Funniest Comedian of All Time award went to Rick Younger! He won a small, decorative frame-type object that is sure to make reading the Sunday comics even more tedious than usual.

You can join Yorik's skeleton at our 2nd Annual

Halloween Scare-avaganza

on October 26th! There will be a prize for the best costume, so invite that funny-faced friend of yours!
