First Blog: Kenbo Part 2

Featured Audience Members, Show Recap No Comments »

Hey y’all! It’s your old pal Castmember Ken, here with tonight’s blog. I have never blogged before. Be prepared for some rookie mistakes, like subjects tossed about without predicates, non-linear plot points and gross overuse of the ellipsis…woops.

Tonight, we have drawn some political ire because of our decision to pre-empt the State of the Union address, but we are plowing on! Tonight’s cast: Jon A., John R., Beth, and the Gold Dust Twins of Leicester, Adam & Dan. Daniel Lee White, our fearless producer, whom I refer to as DLW because we’re so tight, is also in the house.

Cool crowd tonight so far…a couple of dates.  Hope this show gets someone laid!

Table scene: Dan is inappro regarding his marriage to Beth! It was all about stage presence. Face forward, speak loudly and clearly and Yes And’ing…the holy trinity of stage presence.

012710famTonight’s FAM(Featured Audience Member) is: Danielle!

-From Smithfield! (Half Greenville, Half Esmond)

-Has not heard of the Animal Cage! (Jon A. is also from Smithfield)

-Had puppies – Cody Cuddles and Buddy Bumpkins! (not birthed)

-Has a hayfever allergy…but, is unsure if she’s ever been to a farm. (She’s hiding something)

-Rocky Point ride fav: The Rollercoaster

-For fun she goes to improv shows and amusement parks

-Is ashamed of nothing!

-She is an actress and former child gymnast.

-Her favorite thing to eat is Pizza, esp. Pepperoni and Black Olives.  Papa John’s is her favorite joint.

Time for a warm up with Johnny Ringo: Pass the Sound! Everyone’s getting in on the act. These people are doing an awesome Joey Lawrence impression, one woh at a time. Then they all puked. Which was my general reaction to Joey Lawrence when he was a part of my life.

Freeze Tag, hosted by Oscar Van P. aka Dan Wood:  Hayfever is our opening inspiration. Digeridoo Idol – Sh*t gets brutal. Dan the Friendly Martian. Adam as a 6 yr old sure does swear a lot. Was that even the right tense for that sentence? Rocky Point, a place people from Worcester have never heard of before apparently. John Ring has a huge Harpoon. Robotic Arm Pissing Contests rule. Beth is unfit for adoption because of her budding alcoholism. Dan plays with erection sets, which makes a lot of sense. Jon A. is selling Bad Brains(not the punk band).

Alphabet, hosted by Ringo John Starr: Jon A. and Wood-man to start, starting with E, and an input of gymnast. They start by criticizing critics, hypocrites!!! Dan is such a vixen, he makes Jon forget the alphabet sometimes. That is hot!!! Dan and Jon go out back to back under the gavel of John Ring the Hanging Judge! It’s getting ugly. Adam and Beth start anew. Adam’s family has invented everything…ever. They make it around the Cape of Good Horn and end this round. Cody Cuddles is the input for Dan and our pal Ray T. starring Ray as Cody Cuddles. DLW is rubbing some beard up on some Cody, it’s choice. Ray has outlasted 2 castmembers, Cuddles indeed.

Interrogation Line Up with Officer Adam Kennedy: Danielle has joined the cast to be a lineup participant, as Ray was wrong by society. The gets: Going to the Gym, with  Garfield at a Hot Dog Stand. * DLW is a little slow, luckily he has Dan Wood to help him confess he was on the Treads at the Sports Club. Beth is dismissed before she can speak, but, is then called back into the room.  Jon A. is a lazy boy, how could he have gone to the gym??? Once again Mr. Wood has gotten the get, and names Garfield as his accomplice. Beth names the Street Meat as the locale and confesses to her crime!

Song Time with Dan and Jon hosting, and Ray joining the cast, Ready to Rock!

Song 1: Leaky Aquarium* Ray bares his soul about lost fish. Adam resurrects fish.

Song 2: Life in the Trunk of your Car, Period(While having your period)* Sounds like a Fiona Apple title, butt, it is the blues. Beth, the only lady on stage, appropriately steps up. She’s gettin’ all political with it. She hates those filibusters.

Song 3: How Many Fish Must a Man Swim Past*Adam and Ray enjoy nonsense when Fish are involved. How many rocks do fit in The Titanic???

Song 4: 50s Xmas Songs about Religious Intolerance anyone? Yes, please. Ramen Noodles make the change in the world that we want to become. Festivus Kwanzaa Menorahs are the Majora!!!

As Wormser and Lamar said in Revenge of the Nerds, “Breaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaak.”

We’re back! I may play this half of the show due to the somewhat shy crowd and the fact that, like sex, I can’t just watch without wanting to join in, so, mind the gaps!

Medical Excuses with Dr. Dan Wood. New Game! People giving the doctor an outrageous condition, and the doctor responding with an even more outrageous treatment. Dan Wood’s ass is dropping apples.  John Ring is NOT, I repeat, NOT a gymnast. Adam’s 4skin is frozen to his 3skin, ouch! Jon A. can’t stop puking up kittens, but, that is ok!

Chainsaw Time! Adam is hosting, as always Occupation, Location, Object! I am going to play this time!

So a grave digger in a coffee shop with a child, in a very dirty way, became a grave digger in a coffee shop with a coin operated real doll.

Well, this blog has been a blast. I finally popped my blog cherry!

Thanks, Ken! Now back to the games. What’s that you say? You want to see a game based on a Clint Eastwood movie? Well then, you’re in luck. It’s time for The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Advice givers, take it away.

John, Ray and Jon are bringing it!

Issue: How can she get her dog to lose weight?

Good: The dog needs to run 45 laps a day…wait, maybe more. Powerade and a Monster Energy drink, and that dog will be all set. And dead.

Bad: Head down to the Chinese resta…wait a minute. That’s not nice.

Ugly: Apparently, the answer is to let the dog get sexy times. Wha?

Issue: The Democratic Party is punked. Help!

Good: Don’t vote. Thanks, Civics teacher!

Bad: Take drastic action. Camp out in their front yard and make rude gestures.

Ugly: Take a hammer. Beat yourself in the head with it. Then, run as a Democrat, and you’ll get elected. Problem solved!

Issue: Looking for an apartment for June…the month of June, you silly.

Good: Craigslist. Missed connections. Boom. Apartment.

Bad: Follow people home. But only if they look cool. Be nice when you follow them into their apartment.

Ugly: Rent yourself!

It was so nice, we’re doing it twice. Daniel, Marina, and Adam. Bring it, y’all.

Issue: Need a place to go for SPring Break

Good: Charter a plane and go to haiti to rebuild.

Bad: Take your parents’ cc and go to Florida and get wasted!

Ugly: Take a strait jacket, wrap it around yourself, lock yourself in a phone booth, drop it in the water, then get yourself out of it. Set a new record.

Issue: How do I get my 3-year old son to stop wiping poo on the seat?

Good: Go to a store and buy finger paints. Let him be creative in his room.

Bad: Stop letting him in the bathroom while you s(&*.

Ugly: Take a s&^*, smear it on the house, and then what’s he gonna s&^ on? Nothing!

Issue: How do I stop getting harrassed by the man?

Good: Stop grabbing the dude’s junk!

Bad: Harass him back!

Ugly: You take the man, wrap him in a strait jacket, put him in a cell booth and drop him 55km in water and cover him in sh%&!

And the final game was movie critics!  It was the tertiary!  You should have been here!

And Scene!

BYOI – 01/20/10

Featured Audience Members, Show Recap, Upcoming Events No Comments »

012010famHey there, and welcome to Tom’s blog for the January 20th 2010 B.Y.O.I. show! Tonight was a great show, our cast line up was the slick Adam, fabulous Beth, great John, enthusiastic Jon, peppy Jimmy, and punctual Daniel. We want to give a quick shout out to Dan, aka Oscar Van Pudding, “Hope you get well soon!” Tons of laughs and great ideas from such a great audience helped make this show amazing.

R.E.S.P.E.C.T. – As usual, Daniel still cannot seem to remember how to spell that word, but always seems to end with great style.

Yes & That’s How It’s Done – Very interesting scene involving flamable Star Wars sheets, it always seems to work no matter what the scene is, I wonder why.

F.A.M. – Our FAM tonight was a new BYOI’er, Beth. She doesn’t belong to any clubs, wants to be a wedding planner, from New Jersey, loves the color pink. She also is an early bird whom is Irish, and would classify herself as the cereal Kix because she’s, “Mother approved!”

Warm Up – Jon warmed up the audience with a great train/wave game. Thanks Daniel for the random thing that pops in your head, “Things that start with the letter ‘D’!”

Meanwhile – Adam hosted this game that started off talking about buying tickets to see Pink. Meanwhile at the salon, Beth and Jon came across a problem because he only had steak knives instead of scissors. Meanwhile wishing to come to America, Adam is allowed, however John is not. Meanwhile in Spanish class, Beth was late to class with a pass and no one really knows how to speak spanish. Meanwhile at the gum factory, Jimmy’s jaw hurts and he’s losing his teeth while Adam has swallowed moth balls. Meanwhile at his Grandma’s house, Beth wants a drink from the fridge while no one gets a seat for Grandma. Meanwhile at the gym, Daniel and Jon got their excercise while Adam complained. Meanwhile at the plastic surgeon, Beth got some great work done by Dr. Jon before helping Jimmy figure out what needed fixing. Meanwhile at the tatoo parlor, Daniel’s giving out free tatoos to John so others can tell which side is his front, and Adam’s got huge boobs. Meanwhile at the mall, Jimmy doesn’t want to pay for a massage so he steals Beth’s free pass. Meanwhile at the edge of town, Jimmy and John are ballet style refusing to cross the town line while Daniel’s trying to convince them that it’s alright to cross. Now if this scene makes sense to you, you may need to seek help. No one could ever guess where this scene was going, yet everything always fell into place.

Story, Story, Die – We had Cosmo magazine, meets Steven Spielburg, meets fantasy, meets island, meets Spin magazine. Jon died a fantasy death of being on fire while sinking in a pit. Adam died a island pirate scorpian death. John died of talked himself Cosmo style.  And Jimmy DJ’d himself to the floor. Beth was the hero of this ‘movie’ and was the last woman standing.

Press Conference – Beth was Kristen Wigg who just saved the bay being interviewed by Jimmy, Daniel, and a great audience member Marina. 2nd round Jimmy is Jack Skeleton who just got a skin graft being interviewed by Adam, Beth, and Jon. Both rounds were full of great inside questions that the audience caught onto really quick. With their heads boucing off the walls trying to decifer these clues that were coming in from all directions.

Beasty Rap – Great new game, Beth, Adam, and Jon vs Jimmy, John, and Daniel in a hilarious version of the name rhyme game.  Pam to lamb, George to engourge, John to pom-poms. Yet I think team BAJ ended with the most team rhymes in the end.

Intermission!!!

What Are You Doing? – Picking four leaf clovers in the desert / breaking everything with my rubber dracula / great game with lots of laughs from the audience. So much going on that wasn’t going on it all blurred into many great rotations of the many great ideas of the BYOI cast.

The Quickest Minute – Jimmy and Jon slammed out “Beauty and the Beast” in a minute. Shame on Beast Jon blew out Candle-Stick’s flame. “Pots and pans and the pots and pans.” “My Porn! “Wow they power crunched it out in 30 secs. Dude, 10 secs how did they do pull it off? I don’t know how, all I know is they did, and it was great.

2nd round, Adam and Jimmy are BFF’s at the waterslide. Jimmy wants to go down first so he can save Adam’s life. 30 seconds piece of cake for these pros, so easy, they even did it in FIVE SECONDS!!! You guys rock!

3rd round was a little backwards, Beth is lost in New York while homeless Jon pukes all over the place all in 10 seconds. Within 30 seconds Jimmy and Adam help Jon drink his free shots. Time for the minute scene puke, puke, puke!

Famous Last Words – Circus Clown “We can fit one more in this car, I’m sure of it.” / Tattoo Artist “He’ll never find this one!” / Breakfast Cereal “I guess these aren’t lucky charms” “I’m lactoise intolerant” / Doctor “Dammit Jim, I got the Vulcan Clap now” / Farmer “God, I swear I’m gonna quit Farmville”

Pavlovian Response – 1st round was by far the funniest scene ever. Because it was so funny the audience, myself included, just could not stop laughing. Due to all the laughter, Adam had to grab a noodle and smack anyone inside the circle, meanwhile Daniel had to keep grabbing his crotch everytime 2 hand came into contact with each other. John had they best one… whenever the word ‘is’ was spoken he had to dance.

2nd round was just as hilarious. Jimmy kept hugging people who couldn’t start their sentences with real words while Jon spent half of the scene sitting on the floor whenever someone would place their hands on their hips. Now what made this scene so great was Beth had to sing whenever Jimmy would hug someone, and yell a warcry when Jon would sit onthe floor. Total confusion, and totally insane comedy all across the board.

And there we have it. Although words can never truely discribe such a tremendously hilarious event as a Bring Your Own Improv show, you really need to experience this for yourself. Don’t forget about our “Other 9-5 Show”, Friday, Febuary 5th starting at 9pm and ending at 5 in the morning. best part is after the show breakfast in included! There’s nothing like a free breakfast to end a magical night.

AND SCENE!!!

YES AND THAT’S HOW IT’S DONE – Adam and Beth teach us how to develop a scene by stealing cookies from the cookie jar. Great job Beth for trying to steal those cookies while doing Weight Watchers!

F.A.M – Featured Audience Member is John Bell – Worked with Beth, likes to walk, knows things, coffee makes him wake up, likes tech, would make ‘whoopie’ with fem-bot, don’t ask him to ring your bell, would compete for drinking world record, wanted to be older when he grew up… or an astronaut, wisdom for younger generation… don’t eat yellow snow

WARM UP – Round of nouns starting with P then adjectives starting with B “what’s an adjective”

SIX PACK – Adam and Beth are old… but Adam is aging in reverse, Daniel and Ken are playing with a Sexbot, Jimmy and Dan are celebrating Guinnes Day. “I’m not going to fit in there”, “but when you go to bars, people turn into Asian women”, “I’m 16 again, I’m ready to go out with boys”, “it sucks… I like being a guy”

QUESTIONS – With Beth rocking the ‘Bell of Doom’, Ken get dung out on his first line. Dan and Adam had a great scene taking things away from each other.  Adam just loves asking questions that really don’t make sense. Dan seems to love squirrels.

PARTY QUIRKS – Beth has to guess that Daniel has E. D., Ken is Godzilla, and Jimmy, well, something to do with a can. Beth looks nervous about her party and needs to use her inhalator, ‘careful if you harm me it’s hard for me to get back to normal’, ‘ummm yea, that would be what we call inappropriate’, ‘Hey what’s up….

011310famWelcome to the recap from another arousing night of B.Y.O.I. Tonight was so full of laughs that my sides are killing me. We had plenty of regular BYOI’ers that helped us out tonight, as well as a few new faces. Don’t forget to bring a friend! Daniel, Jon, Beth, John, Adam, and Jimmy rocked this show to it’s core! Even though Beth left early, we still love her. 🙂

R.E.S.P.E.C.T. – Daniel flew out the letters tonight, with or without music, it didn’t matter, he was awesome!

Yes And, That’s How It’s Done! – A crazy scene brought out by our “scene-masters” John and Adam. I never understand how they can make something so random make so much sense. Naked pictures of your mother on a digital camara… Wow!

F.A.M. – It would be my pleasure to introduce our newest addition to the FAM, Lauren, whom we learned a good amount about. Seems she’s pro-cow and she’s pro-life, but hates haircuts from her mother.

Warm-Up – Thanks goes out to good ‘ole Jon for warming us up with those crazy antics. If I wasn’t writing this I’d pull the “Peter from Family Guy gag”, ‘and…, and…, and…’

Six Pack – Jon, Adam, Beth & John stepped up to the plate for this one. Weird haircuts, trips to Disney World, and failure to tip, all different, yet all intertwinded. First time this has ever happened, double claps to get into a scene, yet somehow forgot the line. Thanks Jon for getting us back on track

Questions – Spelling Bee to Zoo, many questions, and a few statements DING! Gotta love when even our casts members lose themselves in their ability to asks questions, it reminds us that it’s alright to have a brain fart every now and then.

Party Quirks – Wow, Beth was stripping due to everything she owns growing wings. Good friend Joe W. was too good as Bill Clinton, as John figured it out right off the bat. And a new BYOI’er was a great toaster. Great job John figuring it all out and wrapping this strange party up.

Pillars / Helping Hands – Adam and Dan, working at the carnival.While Dan makes paper, Adam is dipping apples. Little did they know they both had the same professor for Hide and Go Seek.

Intermission

What Are You Doing? – Picking my nose with a telephone. / making tacos with my feet. / I’m weighing King Kong’s balls.

Marriage Counciler – Thank goodness Jimmy is here to help this crazy couple, seems Adam likes to eat raw meat, and Dan is Lindsay Lohan. Apparently Adam likes to leave his socks all over the bed. Wow long game, Jimmy was lost

Confucius Says In Bed – New game, lots of jokes with tons of laughs. DEPARTMENT STORE: “If the line is longer than 8 people, we will open a new register, IN BED!!!” “Everything you’ve always wanted now 20% off, IN BED!!!”

Sit, Stand, and Lay Down – Bad Jimmy for burning ants at the park. Good job Ray for stealing those ants from Jimmy, but I don’t believe eating them to keep them from him was such a smart move. Jon, such a team leader directing this scene and keeping it flowing.

Freeze Tag – “I’m deaf, can I fight him?” Ultimate Blind Fighters!!!

And Scene!!!

Friday Jan 8, 2010 is all about Jessi

Good cop, bad cop – Oscar is the criminal who woke up with Luke Skywalker in Atlantis, maybe we should ‘lay-a’ you down, have some Folders… it’s the best part, now Jed only has one eye… Lucky Oscar didn’t catch on when Ken actually said Woke Up before Oscar guessed it.

Greatest hits – This is a new game, with Oscar playing guitar and the cast/audience sings songs in turn based on suggestions – Religion – but not as good as wearing two hoods, don’t sweat me… I won’t I’m wearing deodorant – Help – help me I am being acosted by a man, that is so frickin gay – Blue birds have the blues – god will forgive me eventually, I didn’t mean to sleep with that grizzly, just wanna suck t*tties till the day we die – Angel but not anymore – you thought I said will you grab my b@lls, even when I was little… the same thing happened

010610famWelcome to the blog of our 1st show of our 3rd season. New games, and new energy is busting out from the seams.

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
Daniel still hasn’t learned how to spell, but he still fights his way through it with style.

Yes and, That’s How It’s Done!
Adam and Ken created a very creative, and strangely agreeable scene that somehow worked with itself. Sweetness!

Featured Audience Member (F.A.M.)
Thank you Ray D. for becoming part of our FAM. We really learned a lot of strange, cool, and funny things about you. Thanks for being here, and thanks for helping us out!

Freeze Tag
Jimmy starts it off with respect to Dan. “Get the fork out!” thanks Daniel. Newest birthday party game, “Pin the nose on the human”. Thanks to Jon for breaking up the crazy immigrant hiding spots; pants, shoes, … armpits? I’d be afraid where else one could hide, lol.

Alphabet
Tacks… Adam and Jon started the game with Ken rocking the bell. Dan had to jump in to help Adam followed shortly by Beth. Lost in his own words Jon dung himself out to allow our FAM, Ray D, to step in to play around and finish up the round with Beth. Great job everybody!

Good Cop, Bad Cop
Poor Dan got himself arrested for some silly things again with some silly people, in the silliest of locations. And to make matters worse, he can’t remember any of it. However to help him remember both Jimmy and Ken are here. This is what Dan gets for listening to one of Nirvana’s first albums backwards and stealing people’s socks, and having his way with them. I mean seriously, why would he ever find one of the largest and most colorful vehicle, only to bleach other people’s clothes in it?

Greatest Hits – NEW GAME
This is the first new game of the night, and the season. But don’t worry, more will come. It starts off with the audience helping us out with a topic. That topic becomes the title of our new album that our cast sings of all original songs using titles that are given to them by a volunteer audience member. A great big THANKS goes out to Dan for bringing that sweet acoustic guitar to help this game soar. Ken, Jimmy, Beth, and Adam made these songs come out so smooth that I wish I was recording. HOT DAMN!!! That F*ing ROCKED!!!

INTERMISSION

What Are You Doing?
Nice Adam, Jimmy is “Kicking @$$ and taking names” “Here is my driver’s license, please don’t kick my @$$.” “Do you have a donkey?” / Leave it to Daniel to be, “Testing if flagpoles are frozen… with his tongue” / “Thinking of a number between 1 and…” “Pie?”

Chainsaw
Haven’t seen this game in a long time, one of my all time favorites. Beth starts with being a ninja, in a toll booth, using bubble wrap. I wonder how it will turn our. Our FAM seemed to get the occupation well, as well as the location, but I’m not so sure about the object. Daniel I think got some of it mixed up, but that’s what makes this game great. Dan on the other hand, being a 3rd man in the chain might had gotten some really mixed signals. Going with what he thought, relayed those to Jimmy and had the audience dying of laughter. I can only imagine how Jon will take Jimmy’s take on all of this. Wow this violent version of the old-fashion game “Telephone” is amazing! How does this turn out? Bubble wrap = Dance Dance Revolution?

Back In My Day – NEW GAME
Another new game. It’s a line game where cast and audience members line up… and give lines. “Back in my day, we didn’t have…” High School, we had Low School, and we had to crawl to get in. / Teddy Ruxpin, if we wanted a talking bear, we’d shove a midget into a grizzly!

Space Jump – NEW GAME
Another BYOI new creation, kinda crazy fun, everything from hippo’s and preggo’s to Beth’s strange dreams. So much “grew” into the scenes, and nothing but laughter as the scenes “shrunk”.

What a great night, just like old times. But with new flavor! And to remind all of you BYOI’ers out there, Feb. 5th is our “Other 9 to 5” show, breakfast will be included with this crazy great event, Don’t miss it! AND SCENE!!!
