Show 15: All the Pretty Colors

Postmark Cafe is alive with vibrant colors this winter. Stop on by and see the artwork of P.S. 124 decorating the walls! It's a lovely prelude to the colorful lineup of comedians that stellar emcee Brendan Fitzgibbons introduced:

Ruhbin Mehta
Greg Tito
Laura Mannino
Abbi Crutchfield and
Matt McCarthy

We had a lot of returning champs this evening, and the talented Brendan Fitzgibbons led the lineup. Ruhbin Mehta came to bid us adieu before he heads off to Canada for a couple of months. We'll miss him! Especially his jokes.

Greg Tito, one of the sixteen married people in New York, came by to remind us of the joys of matrimony.

Laura Mannino enlightened us to marital traditions--and the power of EPT. I mean ESP.

Abbi unveiled a short, red hairstyle and used the stage as a platform to vent her fears of trying something new.

The puff on the hat was inspiration for the 'do.

Speaking of new stuff, this Friday marked the first Living Room Original Slideshow Presentation! Click here to see this funny new addition to the show.

Ezekiel Raindance, the conservative hippie read the current events and channeled his positive energy through a red knit cap. Who knew George W. Bush's agenda could be so Groovy?

Thanks to Matt McCarthy's Red-DAR he could tell that Abbi's hair color was not natural. That means they could still have babies that wouldn't burst into flames. He closed the show like a pro by falling on the floor in a drunken stupor.

The crowd went wild, and so did the Hat of Chance when Matt became a two-time champion as the Funniest Comedian of All Time.

He's going to play his Jaye P. Morgan record under a pile of spaghetti. But you're going to play our trivia and walk away with a fabulous prize after a night of hilarity at the next show. Just like these three happy people.

Bring your sweetie for the Spread the Love Valentine's Special on February 9th!

Show 14: Happy New Year!

It is a new year, so we're bringing new fun to the Living Room show! We're beefing up the audience prizes thanks to Postmark and other restaurants in the area. Whoever correctly answers trivia questions from the Golden Box of Knowledge takes home a gift! Submit your questions at the beginning of each week's show and win at the end! This lucky man was the first to win, and could not have possibly held that bagel in a worse spot.

Brendan Fitzgibbons came back from vacation to host and inform us of his New Year's Resolutions, a.k.a. Things he will never ever do again.

He also resolved to introduce the excellence that is:
Abbi Crutchfield
Matt Little
Nick Cobb and
JL Cauvin

Abbi opened the show with her resolution not to re-gift. But then no-one would ever get an F-CAT award...Matt Little busted out on the scene for his second appearance at the show. He even interrupted the set to have a heart-to-heart with an audience member.

Ronald Trump, entrepreneur and illegitimate son of Donald Trump, presented the news of the future and enlightened us as to what will happen in 2007.

Nick Cobb went up after a thorough writing session in the Green Room

and rocked the room sideways with his hilarious account of family games.

The honorable Billy Simmons (a.k.a. Whitey X) shared his single resolution pertaining to his membership of the Nation of Islam

J.L. gave us his two cents on the war in Iraq which was like no other cents you'll ever hear jingling in the cup of your local panhandler.

The New Year's Baby toddled in to shake his diaper at the next winner of the Funniest Comedian of All Time award! Matt Little was so happy to win, he picked the Baby up!

He took home a vintage, authentic Lisa Frank pencil box complete with drawers to hide all his little secrets.

This man had a wonderful time, and you will too at our next show on January 26th!

Postmark Cafe now features coffee art! If you like bunnies on your lattes. They're Jen's specialty.

Show 13: A Very Living Room Christmas

You could have been stuck at an airport on your way home for the holiday, but instead, you chose to come out to see the Living Room show! Thanks to those who came in from the cold to watch the tremendous talent of:
Chad Weiss
Jeff Sussman and
John F. O’Donnell.

Luke warmed up the crowd and taught us the real meaning of Christmas by reading from the Good Book. Unfortunately the book was upside down, the story was wrong, and Luke revealed that he can’t read.

But the clouds parted and the heavens shined down on Chad Weiss and his fiancée guaranteeing one of his most blessed performances.

The show was interrupted several times by Rudolph the Entrepreneurial Reindeer. He offered cookies, then newspapers, and finally his musical talents in order to bring the subway to Postmark.

Celebrity Sighting: singing sensation Aubrey Hart came down to sweeten his coffee and laugh the night away!

Jeff Sussman kept it crack-a-lackin’ with old school goodness and new school crowd work.

Connecticut homemaker and future Soccer Mom Mrs. Marsha Peterson was in town visiting her sister for the holiday. With a butternut squash in the oven, she took a moment to stop by and read the news. Maybe next time she’ll read it aloud.

John F. O’Donnell riffed with pregnant audience members and then played joke doctor to heal the room and the world.

It was enough to earn him the title of Funniest Comedian of All Time where he took home the stocking stuffers of expired coupons and a set of red noses (or envelope seals, if his cards aren’t sent out yet)!

This lucky fellow won the audience prize for knowing the answer to our trivia about Rocky Balboa, a.k.a. the best film you’ll see this winter.

Be nice not naughty and come to the first show of the new year on January 12th!
