Asssscat!

Posted on: June 2nd, 2010 by wmapother 3 Comments

There are just so many tempting directions to take that title…  But we have ground to cover, people, so that’s a riff for another day.  (sigh.)

Asssscat! is the name of a regular show at the fabulous UCB comedy theatre (which held the ‘Lost’ show two weeks ago – posts here and here).

The set-up:  Using a suggestion from the audience, a guest monologist spills his guts for 5-10 minutes by sharing his thoughts, feelings, or a meaningful story from his past.  Then a group of improv comedians comes up on stage, takes those guts, and spins them into comic gold.  Then we do it again:  Suggestion, guts, comic gold.  Repeat until guest dies.

So who are these mystery monologists?  UCB website:  “Some guest monologists are talented celebrities, others are screwed up weirdoes.”

This Saturday’s monologist and guts-spiller?  I am he.  It should be loads of fun — for everyone else.  (Kidding!)  I’m sure it’ll be a blast.

The UCB schedule is here, and the show description and link to tickets is here.

    is very good to know that an actor dedicated open space to support the theater,as many of us who are still getting very dependent on the theater.
