Last Night's Episode - THE FALLOUT?!

Last night Geva Comedy Improv presented week four of "FIASCO: Lake Boat!" out at SUNY Brockport. It was an interesting show because our numbers were down to just: Tim, Josie, Chris, Mike, Brian and Paul along with our narrator Adam. Numbers, schumbers - we blew the door off SUNY BROCKPORT and they had to call the fire department to hose us down because things got HOTTT!
On a suggestion from Mr Litz, we used the convention where we started the story with everyone in danger - in this case, the entire crew was locked in Supply Room #3 and Bradley had assumed Temporary Captainship of what was becoming a disaster! Then, using flashbacks we revealed how we got there. It was a terrific device that really helped facilitate the entire adventure. Surprises included:
* Steve (Brian D.) revealing that he was a robot.
* Brad (Chris H.) revealing that he had Gulf War Syndrome and was an ex-marine (who took Tae-bo).
* Rosemarie (Josie S.) revealing that she was pregnant through immaculate conception.
* Captain Barney (Paul N.) revealing that he had taken his daughter Rosemarie away from her mother at a young age.
* Gerald (Tim G.) revealing he was not from the South at all, but rather actually named Tom Sawyer Johnson and hailed from Cleveland, Ohio.
* Frank (Mike C.) revealing that he was dead when Steve snapped his neck.
........and much, much more!

Afterwards, the crew headed over to Acme Pizza for their two-for-one drink special. We promptly left because it was crowded there. Across the street at O'Callahans, we drank two pitchers and teased a very tired Tim Goodwin about his Rochester D&C Insider profile . After watching the Steelers get beat up by the competition (the Toronto Ragnars? I don't know. I don't follow Football), we looked up during the news to see a graphic that read, "CANADA'S GOVERNMENT TOPPLED". That was sort of a shocker but since the TV was on mute, we didn't know the circumstances. The next slide had a picture of local rich-dude Tom Golisano, so we assumed that he had assumed control of our Northern neighbors. From now on, I will comply with his wishes and call all the "Tim Horton" restaurants "Tom Golisano". I, for one, welcome our conquering billionares. ROCK.

So, tune in next week at the Student Commons Building - Room 112 (something like that, you'll see the table set up and the ticket sellers) for the LAST episode of this season of FIASCO: LAKE BOAT~! Tickets are $1 for students, $2 for non-students and the show starts at 930 PM on Monday Night out at SUNY BROCKPORT. If you need more details, let me know! It should be a sold-out extravaganza with tons and tons of twists & turns. Dontchadaremissit!
