April Fools!

Holy cow. Thanks to all of you who came out for our April Fools’ Fun-Around! It was a messy, silly, fun night full of FUN and WHIMSY! Thanks to Julie at front of house, everyone at Largo at the Coronet, Type 55 Films, Cayenne Chris Conroy, and the patient, awesome Andy Paley Orchestra: Andy Paley, Becky Ward, and “Spooky” Jonathan Dinerstein!

Thanks to our director Aaron Ginsburg (who had a relatively easy night) and to Ben Acker & Ben Blacker for creating and producing the show.

We had a crazy and fun mix of performers last night, some of whom are WorkJuice Players and some of whom had never even seen the show. All performed memorably and wonderfully, and thanks to all of them:

Autumn Reeser, Annie Savage, Hal Lublin, Craig Cackowski, Busy Philipps, Marc Evan Jackson, John Ross Bowie, Michael McMillian, Lauren Lapkus, Janet Varney (so sorry you couldn’t stay!), Andy Daly, Mark McConville, Ben Schwartz, Felicia Day, John Hodgman,

and our host and ringmaster, the intergalactic instigator, Paul F. Tompkins.

Thanks to everyone who joined us last night at Largo at the Coronet​. You are our Valentines!
Thanks to everyone behind the scenes, Type 55 Films, photographer Roman Cho, master curtaineer Todd Cooper, everyone at Largo, director-down-under Aaron Ginsburg, and the Andy Paley​ Orchestra!

Yesterday I went to see the Thrilling Adventure Hour at the Bell House in Brooklyn.

It was incredible. Right when we walked into the venue, we passed by the bar where Paul F Tompkins, in that awesome green coat, was have a good laugh and a drink. Then, while waiting in the line to get our hands stamped, James Urbaniack, and Colin Hanks passed by us.

It was basically the best.

So the pictures are not great; they were taken on my phone.

If you hear an explosion or a big buzzing bee,

roaring and snoring, well they’re all thanks to me!

Look at those actors, every one is a pro!

They’re polished and powdered and dressed to the nines!

This here bartender’s helping us pour over our lines!

We’re finally ready to go!

So let’s get on with the show!
