Here we go again. Another Halloween, another Schtick or Treat. If ya missed last year's, here's the idea: Bands often perform special "tribute" sets on Halloween and do a show as some bigger, more famous band. It's fun and crowds dig it. This is like that, but with comedy. It's a quick turnover show where each comic gets up to three minutes to do a set as a famous comic and then it's on to the next performer. Last year's was a ton of fun and this one should be a blast too.

Some of last year's performers:

This year, you'll get to see people like Alonzo "Hamburger" Jones:

And while we're announcing stuff...

This should be a lot of fun! That same night Hassan Madry is covering my hosting duties at Intermission by pretending to be me. This should be a frighteningly funny night!

Jon Clarke said...

Yay! Comedy fun night!

Abbi Crutchfield said...

Carson and Rickles! Can't wait! Here comes the dilemma of finding a jogging suit with shoulder pads...

Buddy said...

My favorite time of year! I'm already tanning.

Doogie Horner said...

Wow! That's a great idea. Such a cool concept.

Mike Lawrence said...

I love it because it's the one show a year where if I bomb I get to blame it on someone else. "Damnit, you should've been funnier tonight....Rip Taylor!"

P.S. It'll still be my fault, won't it?
