Neuman?, I’m gonna paint her face to look like a man, you can’t paint Chuck Noris’ face on anybody, I’m a man I can do my own thing.

Questions – ‘Potato Skins’ – why must you talk about things I don’t understand, “Why isn’t there more Pudding”, How many guys are walking around with plastic fangs, why is she always here in our trailer, what makes you think I’m selling something other then rides, aren’t all vegans crazy, have you tried the holy water, “MORE PUDDING” Who wants Ice Cream.

Press Conference – Marry Poppins – Blew up the moon – did you do this cause of your lactose intolerance?, did you get the idea from a Martian named Marvin by chance, was it full when you did it, Was this Disney sanctioned.

Back in PUDDING’s day – coffee – cause coffee is bad for kids – Knitting – cause men were real men and didn’t wear v-neck shirts – colored snow – good sex – back in Pudding’s day we didn’t have good sex… that was the result.

Short Cuts – Beth starts a scene carrying OVP, then tables turn and Beth ends up carrying Jimmy while OVP hops on Adam’s back. Somehow ending in a ‘chicken fight’. Adam P. and Jimmy start a scene about making dough, and OVP steps out to help mix a bowl, “LESS PUDDING!”

Good Night, Newport!

Featured Audience Members, Show Recap No Comments »

Well, we’ve come to the end of the summer. Jack and Donna opened the Firehouse Theater to us on Thursday nights, and we couldn’t be more grateful.

For this, our last show of the summer, we were lucky enough to have a FAM who not only had stories to tell but the cutest name ever. Jeri. What’s that you say? That’s a lovely name, but not the cutest ever? Well, she was sitting next to her husband Tom. That’s right. Tom and Jeri. She once owned a dress shop. He travels a lot for work. Together, they’re Tom…and Jeri.

How cute are they?

We started the night with our questions and then a song about Jeri and her dress shop and its smelly patrons. We moved on to Revolver, Good Cop/Bad Cop and Back in My Day. Anna and Jim from the Bit Players came up to help us on a bunch of games. And Mel brought down the house during Story, Story, Die.

We closed the night with another song about Jeri. This time it was about her husband’s ever-changing name!

All in all, it was a great night. Thank you so much to Jack and Donna, to the Firehouse Theater and to Newport for letting us play all summer.

August of the 25th 2010 style

082510famHello there and welcome to the blog for the great improv show, BYOI. Tonight was a great night filled with many laughs, and even a few tears. Adam popped out of no-where to start this night off with a bang by giving us the great RESPECT The Spot speech. Our cast tonight included Jimmy, Beth, Jon, Ben, Adam and Oscar.

Ben warmed us all up by having the audience shout out some rando suggestions, like their name, pets name, middle name of our third president, favorite song to wake up to, favorite childhood toy. Then after getting the audience to stand up, he wants to play Hurricane, Hurrican’t, which involved waving your hands in the wair and leaning based on what level this hurricane blew.

Our FAM tonight was Jenn, whom best describes herself as Amazing and Honest. She also doesn’t know any names of the Backstreet Boys. She is a teacher, and the craziest school thing that happened was when she was pregnant, one of her ‘kids’ poked her tummy. On a side note, she is trying to teach her friend to walk sexy in order to try and get her a man. She has two little ones, one 7, and the other only 8 months. Her hubby, and father of her two kids, was a stalker of her at her church. Her 7 year old was Google’ing ‘how to be a good kisser’.

The cast showed off some great improv skills by playing Six Pack in the me of  our FAM, Jenn. Beth & Oscar = school / Adam & Ben = church / Jimmy & Jon = walking sexy. Jimmy tells Jon he’s already sexy, but needs to work on his walk, so he does the strangest prance ever. Beth claps in on the line, “It’s like I’m on fire!” and Oscar plays the teacher and says, “If you don’t cut this out you might be.” Beth just rambles like a crazy school girl for a good 30 seconds, so Ben claps in and sums it all up in about 3 seconds, making the audience bust out laughing.

Questions – Jimmy starts out a scene with an audience member and they really shoot it back to each other to make a good run. “Would you believe I’m a troll?” “Aren’t you suppose to be under a bridge?” / Oscar steps out and begins a ‘Nerd-Off’. Ali steps out and tries her might against the great question man, Jimmy in a scene @ Wal-Mart, but is short lived. Beth then steps up for the challenge and they create a hilarious scene involving Golden Snake Cannabis, to finally taken down the great Jimmy. An audience member steps out to play with Beth, “Have you scene my mom?” “What time is it?”.  Ben replaces the audience member and plays a scene involving babies dressed as goats.

Press Conference – Oscar, Beth, and an audience member interview Jimmy, as Barney the dinosaur, whom invented the pogo stick. Great question Oscar, “So, how many people have been inside of you?” Crazy question from Beth, “Have you been sued a lot from this product? I mean a little kid would be like, ‘Oohhh Jesus was on one of these once.’ So have that happened to you yet?

Good, Bad, Ugly – Jon is good advice, Bryan is bad, and Ben is ugly. A member of the audience wants advice on whether or not to eat the other half of a second burrito. Jon’s advice was if you are hungry, yes, eat it. Bryan’s advice, is be as masculine as possible when you eat it. Ben, “As a half eaten burrito on the stage, you can suck my ca-hones!” When dealing with a “Negative Nancy!” Jon cake or half eaten burrito. Bryan, look at other people’s sadness. Ben, Hey, you could be wrapped in tin foil, thrown in the oven, get over it.

  1. Guacamole – Oscar and Beth sing a song, while Adam K. Adam P. and Jimmy mime it out for us. This song is all about monkey. Captain Hook, albino monkeys,  Santa Claus, drunken fights, dirty draws for X-mas presents, and finger traps are about as crazy as this song went. Hellz Yeah!

***INTERMISSION***

Yes and, That’s How It’s Done – Jimmy and Adam use the promp “Movie” to create a scene about some crazy stuff that goes down in a crazy movie, chandler falling from a airplane and hit someone. The lesson here was all about projecting your voice so the audience can hear you.

Ben steps out and asks everyone to pull your phone out and access your last text message. August b-days stand up, then July, followed by June. Then had those standing read out loud their messages. All this was to get ready for the next game.

Catch Phrase – An audience member – I’m stolen, I’m happy. / Adam – I’m just shopping around, Thanks! Jimmy plays the glue in this scene and keeps things moving along smooth.

2nd Round – Oscar is a great scene master, but he has to help his scene brothers, Jon – What time will you be home? Zoinks! / An audience member – They can do that? So much sweat!

Back In My Day – We didn’t have… Exit Signs – I had to get ‘Entrance Only’ tattoo’ed on my @$$. / Plungers – We had ropes and pully’s to climb up walls. / Rat Poison – So cigarettes were a little more healthy. / Gum – My teeth just rattled around in my mouth like a rain stick. / Wallet – We just had bags with dollar signs on them. / Trees – We only has twos and fours. / Twilight – We had morning and night. / Church – God just spoke to ya.

Short Cutz – Beth and Jon start a scene having a marriage argument, then involve their kids who work at an anvil factory. Meanwhile, at the anvil factory, Ben is the boss, and turns the line of anvil checkers into a xylophone line. Oscar got attacked by his laundry, so now that he is afraid of clothes, Adam and Jimmy now do his laundry for him. Ben and an audience member create a scene involving beers and multiple fridges while being roommates, Jimmy and Adam keep coming in and stealing beers.

Revolver – Ben and Ali = Forgivness Day. “How did you know?” “With my castanets.” “OK!” / Ben and Randy = Domesticated Platypus. They fight over what a platypus eats either coco-puffs or duck. / Randy and Oscar = Pretend adopted. “The expiration date on this is really over due, and by the way, you’re adopted.” “These tator tots taste soo much better now that you know you’re adopted.” / Oscar and Beth =  Conductor and Musician. “Wait, Timpani is an instrument? I thought it was just a guy with a lisp.” / Beth and Ali = Lucky. “So you are eating my cereal, and you don’t even like it?”

Guacamole – Cast Only all about Gin and Tonic. Jon and Ben mimed this out. Sonic, not drinking, taking a bath in a sink, Jimmy as a mom, Adam as a drunk dad, New Jerseoily!

8pm tomorrow,  Thursday, is our last show at Fire House Theater.

Look for BYOI @ Improv Boston Sept. 12th @ 7:30, check us out!!!

Naden, is that you?
Hi all. Welcome to another addition of, “How Can We Make You Laugh?” Tonight we’re joined by Adam Kennedy, Jimmy Sorel, Dan Wood, and me, Beth Hicks. If you haven’t been to a show in Newport, you have one more chance to see BYOI on Thursday nights. That’s right, just one. And you won’t want to miss it.

Ben, an investor, helped us with our first game by FAM-ing it up. The man may not think he has interesting stories, but as a former guitarist in a band with a name like The Clap, I can only imagine the tales he could tell. Sitting next to him were people he knew, because they came with him. Ben is a cool dad. Cool enough to bring his son and daughter to a night of hilarity!

After a song, we jumped right in with Two Line Vocab and some help from our birthday lady, Mel. Mel volunteered for several games and was awesome and funny in all of them.

We rapped. We lined up. We laughed. We played until we could play no more. It was the penultimate performance for BYOI at The Firehouse, and it was a good time.

BYOI – Show at the Roger Williams Park Zoo!!!

Featured Audience Members, Private Show, Show Recap No Comments »

081910famHey folks, today we did a private show at the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence for a large group of honor roll kids, and man were they fantastic!

Our FAM was Jasmine and she let us know that both her and her Mom have a big mouth!  She likes gossiping with her friends, watching TV and hates her math teacher.

We got to see a day in her life, did a lot of shaving in What Are You Doing?, Learned that it is not acceptable to be late because your Mom overslept, you missed the buss, but it is cool that you got abducted by space aliens.  Also got to learn that TVs in helmets is bad for quarterbacks, kids can be very violent and that there are great songs about Mexican Veggies and French Onion Soup.

BYOI – The Auditioners Got Game(s)!

Featured Audience Members, Show Recap No Comments »

081810famTonight’s cast: Daniel, Jon, Beth, Adam, Jimmy, and an auditioner, Randy. We were joined by some of our other auditioners: Brian, Adam, Ali, Mike and Derek.

Our featured audience member was Kelly. She is a novelist from East Providence entering URI this fall. She told us about her friends, one who is loud and another who wants to be veterinarian, her brother John (a regular at BYOI and friend of the cast), her mom, Maggie who likes to judge people, and her lying dad. In the scene, an imaginary snake died, much fighting ensued between Jon, playing Kelly and Beth, playing Kelly’s brother John, and lots of ridiculous lies from Randy AKA Dad.

The next game was 60:30:10 and Jon, Jimmy, Adam, Adam, and Randy performed a very animated and physical scene in which….it seems as though Jon died? In the next scene, with Jon, Beth, and Brian, there was a lot of screaming and stabbing and eating of stomachs?

Next up was Party Quirks. Daniel was a calculator, Ali was a Jehova’s Witness, and Jimmy was a pantry. Randy did an excellent job guessing and it was quite the strange gathering.

Meanwhile: The cast played Meanwhile and I let more people in through the door so I have no idea what happened in the game. But I did hear lots of laughs…  🙂

Hoe Down: about scorpions and Captain Hook.

After the break:

Grand Theft Auto: Passengers in a car got attacked crazy Priuses, giant praying mantises, Darth Vader impersonaters, overpaid crossing guards, car insurance salesmen from the ’50s, and modern day dinosaurs.

8-Pack involved scenes about spraying Axe to get lucky on the street, Super Power Lottery, Halloween resolutions, weapons, couple arguments, and tapping that. A great line from Mike: “Sounds like a drink, doesn’t it? Flaming Rickhaw?” – Mike.

Back in My Day excellent one-liners: “We didn’t have coffee grounds, we just dipped a Colombian in hot water,” “We didn’t have roomates. You had to call Steve “your friend Steve”,” “We didn’t have 18th birthdays, we were all at odds,” “We didn’t have Rocko’s Modern Life, all the Australians were still convicts,” “We didn’t have sleep, and that’s why we didn’t have 18th birthdays,” “We didn’t have sleep…made wet dreams really weird,” “We didn’t have tricycles, we had bicycles, cuz if you had a tricycle you were a p#$$%!”.

Say It Again: a great scene with Jimmy and Adam P. entailed the following great lines: “I threw a little bacon grease in there because when it dries up it hurts like a mother” and  “Fortunately I have this horse that I made out of shirts”. The scene with Jon, Adam, and Oscar involved…who knows but Adam K. had a great line alteration: “Blueberry, you’re allergic. DING Boisonberry, you’re a poisoned”.

Shortcut: a scene about Brazilians at a barber shop, couples therapy interrupted by inopportune haircuts, Sweeney Todd, stabbing disobedient boys, Bobo the monkey, chocolate gold coins, peeping toms, failing tests, and Jordan Dupre.

The last game was another Hoe Down and the song was about wedgies.

Great show, everyone and thanks to our very supportive audience members!

BYOI – Too Many Dutch Ovens

Featured Audience Members, Show Recap No Comments »

081110famTonight’s cast included: John Ring (yay!), Ben, Jon Audette, Oscar, and 2 of our auditioners: Marina and Brian.

Tonight’s FAM: Chris. He works in the Entertainment Dept. of Canobie Lake Park, plays video games after work, and told us about some of his friends/coworkers: Stacy-his crazy boss, Tyler-gay, Tim-intimidating, Brian-manwhore, Ken-douchebag. Great lines from the FAM scene: “Hey, Dad, my fun time meter is going down” and “What do ya think a backup dancer dresses like?!”.

Story, Story, Die: the first participant to die, an audience member, was trampled by a children’s chorus, the second killed by custard, our third pushed to death, John Ring drank molten lava, Brian shot himself, Ben dies in a sexy pose, Oscar dies of regret, and Jon Audette was left to finish the story, with a trip to the sun, where we all would die. A great image to let you imagine their story: “a sexy vampire in outerspace wearing a g-string”.

Freeze Tag keepers: “I don’t have fallopian tubes on me right now…but I will” -Jon Audette; and “It’s just a pretend box. What now, bitch?!” – John Ring.

Brian played guitar for a funk album. John Ring sang a song called “Smelly funk”. Marina sang as Cher. Randy sang an operatic funk about epileptic seizures and the whole crew, including Jon Audette, sang a song about phone calls and operators. Brian concluded with: “Chicken brings home the funk” and a funky chicken dance, of course.

After the break, we played What Are You Doing? Oscar wished he was naked in a river full of canaries, an audience member had to act out a rhinoceros birth, Ben fed Sun Chips to a polar bear, an audience member “milked it for all it was worth,” Brian danced down Sunset Blvd., Jon debated which side of the gay marriage issue to be on, and Oscar stole candy from a giant baby with his reoccurring Bugs Bunny voice “Hewoh baby”.

Marriage Counselor: Ben’s face would melt every time audience member Liz said “honey,” Liz was Winnie the Pooh, and their issue was that they dutch oven each other.

In World’s Worst: we saw Heroine Harry “make sure you use a clean one,” back-pay collecting manwhores, “Mario Does His Taxes” videogame, dutch oven breakfast, cereal-less cereal boxes, Joan Crawford as the worst person to share a margarita with, and some world’s worst superheroes: Asshole Man,  Queef Man, Cock Blocker, Tax Man, Jazz Hands Girl, Taint Man, and lots of dutch oven jokes.

Revolver: Marina painted our FAM Chris’s head blue and then peach with permanent paint, Dan and Chris cut class to drink Guinness and sleep, Marina and auditioner Mike had a domestic dispute over bills, and Mike and Dan danced.

Our last game: Multiple songs about creepers and bananas. Quotables: “Touching was fun back in the ’60s cause it was all about love then”-Brian, and “my family died and you’re worried about a f*cking banana” – Oscar.

Thanks for another fun show and great job to our auditioners, Marina and Brian.
