Comedy Light!

I have a comedy light week. Tomorrow there will be no "Doug Loves Movies" at the UCB Theater he is out of town doing shows. So Thursday will be the only evening we have a show to go to at the UCB. Next week is comedy heavy. No Jane Fonda did not show up for the Improv show on Saturday night. I heard she is still pretty nervous but vows she will do it in a few months. So the 2 guests were a pleasant surprise for me. Max Greenfield from the TV show "New Girl" and he use to be on the TV show "Veronica Mars" and the second guest was Corey Stoll who I remember from the short lived show "Law & Order Los Angeles and his great portrayal of Ernest Hemingway in Woody Allen's 2011 film Midnight in Paris. He has a great body and gorgeous blue eyes! Both guests have never done long form improv in their lives and they did very well after they felt comfortable. Ben Schwartz was on Jay Leno last week promoting a new animated movie his voice is in called "Turbo" and he mentioned his show at the UCB and invited Jay Leno to be a guest so we will see if he is Jay shows up as a guest one of these days. But the down side of him talking about the show is more people are finding out about it. The last couple months tickets have sold out in just minutes. I have been very lucky for getting texts from friends when they go on sale. Last month I just kept the UCB calendar open and kept refreshing until I saw SNOWPANTS appear before my eyes I got 4 tickets next time I am getting 6 tickets hopefully? The theater is small so there aren't a lot of tickets to be had and this show is super popular now!

Hi Dru, I am relaxing at my sister's house in Temecula. Nice to have a break from the business at our house. I was watching the news about the death of Corey M from Glee. So sad. Enjoy your week. I think I am going swimming now. Hugs

Hi Dru!
Isn't that how it always goes when something you find becomes more and more popular. I hope that you can get the number of tickets you need/want fast enough. The show sounds like a really great one and hopefully Jane Fonda will come around soon too. Have a super great day! Hugs

Hi Dru! Too bad the word has gotten out about the shows... hope they keep them free. Jay Leno will probably show up... I think her likes to perform at a club in Hermosa Beach as well as other places. He likes to work on his routines. (((Hugz)))
