So in a combination Good-bye / Congratulations / Happy Birthday (Yes, it is her birthday too!) show for Beth, we will not let her go out quietly, we want her to go out of Rhode Island with a bang! So come out Friday night at 11:00pm to The Spot on Thayer and celebrate Beth Czerny! The woman, the movie reference, the legend! Be you friend or fan of hers, all are invited. We hope to see everyone there!

Jimmy’s Show Highlights 5/6

Show Recap No Comments »

I was very pleased with last night’s show.  We all had a lot of energy and performed well, even when Mel was the only one watching because the entire audience was volunteering!

– Say It Again with Jason went very well, we had a good foundation for a scene, a lot of movement around the semi-C, and we even changed locations where we finished off the scene with the assist from John…Good work Jason and John

– I’m glad we did the impromptu game substitution with Genres. Jon and I had a lot of fun with that one, complete with Silent Movie style callbacks!

– Special thanks to anyone that used me as a prop during freeze tag and didn’t bash my head on the ground {*cough*John*cough*} But really I had fun with that, and for those of you worried about my health, my head is fine, John did not harm any Jimmys in the making of this show

Congrats all to a very good Wednesday night show
