"The Tipped and The Tipsy"
It's just another day for three regular customers as they sit in their usual seat at their usual bar and order the usual from Candy, their usual bartender. But things can't stay like this forever. One of the regulars, an ex-boxer named Pat who is rapidly deteriorating from his alcoholism, is getting cut off. As the fellows rush to his defense, a little white lie mistakenly invokes an obscure bar tradition. Will Pat get his drink?
- Jill performed this piece in its entirety at the Chicago Fringe and the Rogue Festival.
"Mom Spilled Guts on My Taters"
Please don't start Mom! It's bad enough sitting in a smorgasbord, eating taters. Hope people aren't staring. How can I get her to stop? Oh no, I can't believe mom's going there!
- Kenny's solo show "Lettucetown Lies" ran at the San Francisco Marsh and his show "Happy Hour with Kim Jong Il" played Berkeley.
"Oprah Called Me Yesterday To Say That She Wishes She Could Be As Positive As I Am"
Bruce just couldn't get out of bed. Again. Which can only mean that his depression has returned. His friend Janey recommended he start a "happiness journal". That seemed like a misguided idea but he tried it anyway and much to his surprise his life turned around. Romance returned, work looked promising and he was finally able to obtain his favorite pistachio granola at Rainbow Grocery. But how did Terri Garr and the Smuin Ballet become central to his life? People are actually more mystified why a major dance company would create a ballet for him then his romance with a famous actress. It couldn't have been the happiness journal. Could it?
- Bruce's first show, "don't make me look too psychotic" ran for a total of 300 performances. Both "psychotic" and his new show were directed by W. Kamau Bell whose TV series Totally Biased airs five times a week in September on FXX.
