BYOI – She’s Like A Two Thirds

Featured Audience Members, Show Recap No Comments »

IMAG8046_1The 9pm show’s FAM was Jared, who is a junior in high school. He aspires to be a personal injury lawyer someday and came to the show with friends! In FAM Pillar, Jarrod’s mom made him steak and eggs for breakfast every day before his homies came over to watch shooting babies fly across the sky. In What Are You Doing, the cast was joined by audience members Caitlyn, Paul and Zack. They milked a llama, twerked in public and bought stock in a chocolate company. Kennedy got up to play with the cast in Say It Again, where Emily needed advice about a girl. Alan told her to throw a rock to make noise, but I’m not sure that’s the best way to get attention.

Meredith was a horrible, horrible criminal in Good Cop, Bad Cop! She was accused of kissing a bunny in a subway with Pepe Le Pew! Up next was Typewriter, where we witnessed the story of the pencil and her messy love life while choosing between the eraser and the pen! In Slogans, we heard new taglines for things like Sharpies (the permanent solution), calculators, sheep and dolphins! The cows were deformed as Daniel, Jonathan and Kennedy inspected steaks in Sit, Stand and Lie Down. The night ended with Curtain Call, with the cast singing about Jarrod’s friends, politics leading to drinking, David’s twins and our FAM Jared!

IMAG8042_1The family friendly show was definitely a Good Friday, with Daniel, David, Meredith, Alan, Emily and Jonathan! Our FAM was Amy, who came to the show with her son & a friend. She’d like to visit Tahiti some day because of the nice, warm weather. She had a mystery story about a visit to the Bahamas she’s the proud owner of Oreo the dog. Amy really likes extreme sports and sweet & kind people! In FAM Remake, we witnessed a day in the life of Amy as she dealt with her too helpful coworker, Bob. The first revision was a sci-fi documentary, followed by a kung fu musicial!

Helping Hands was great with audience members Linda and Zach as Emily and Alan’s arms in a scene where the servants in Downton Abbey were trying to clean up. Meanwhile, a kid brought home his mystery sibling and James Bond met the real James Bond. Up next in Interrogation Lineup, a terrible crime happened! Daniel and audience member Jennifer got Jonathan to confess to sitting on a cow in an airplane with Justin Bieber. The horror! Meredith had the best ice cream ever in Revolver, and it made her very emotional!

That fun game was followed by Post It, with these crazy combos: dog walker+sleeping bag, Dairy Queen+Land of Oz, and candlestick+villain’s lair! Emily, David and audience member Rose were brave enough to do the story of The Three Bears in Quickest Minute, which a surprise twist at the end! The final game was Debate Club! Alan started talking about how helicopter skiing is fun and exciting, but it veered into figuring out who is the worst surgeon, which of the cast members could fly a helicopter, and finally Daniel won!

Birthday Party, Featured Audience Members, Show Recap No Comments »

imageThanks for coming back to our late night show at the Warwick Museum of Art! We once again had Amy, Daniel, Candice, Meredith and Kennedy, with special appearances by Alan! Our FAM was Michelle, who was at the show with a bunch of friends and family to celebrate her bithday! Happy birthday Michelle! Like our 7pm FAM, she also won tickets to see the P-Bruins this weekend! She would whisk us away to a weekend trip to Tahiti. The cast then serenaded Michelle in FAM Do Run!

Quickest Minute had Meredith whipped into a frenzy as she performed “Mulan” with Daniel and audience member Hunter. They started with the 60 second version before performing shorter and shorter versions. Pillars was next, with Amy and Candice helped out by audience members Nolan and Justin. They were harmoniously harmonious and anti-scary! Chainsaw was a blast, with the addition of Alan and audience member Jarrod. We started off with a psychic exotic dancer on a battleship with an apple. It turned crazy as the location turned into a glass blowing museum or the Grand Canyon.

Michelle’s blind dog and the new neighbor were the subject of Sing It! Unfortunately the dog was rude to the new girl, but it was a blast. Next up was Post It, with crazy combinations like podiatrist and library, Hawaii and hot dog, surgeon and book, and golf ball and taxidermist. Josh and Nolan had help from Daniel and Jarrod in Helping Hands! They were a couple of guys tripping out after sharing drinks. Don’t do that at home! The final game of the night was Story, Story Die! The cast told the story of an introvert who was afraid of going outside, but she went on a date to a magical place with gorillas and unicorns! Alan won the game, and used his power as storyteller to turn the zoo into a unicorn sanctuary.

Happy birthday, Michelle!!
