One of the bright spots from last week happened courtesy of shalmestere
, who got tickets for a special college show by The Capitol Steps. I've heard a couple of their albums, and was a little worried because the humor on the albums was sometimes absurdly dated, sometimes too forced to watch, sometimes amusing 8)
The show was...occasionally dated (Bush debating....John Kerry?), occasionally forced, often HILARIOUS (The Bush debate subject was "Why did the Chicken cross the road?" -- Bush's response was a befuddled tour de farce) and...dear God, the sheer VOLUME of funny material was impressive and fantastic and..."Thanks, I needed that." 8) 8) 8)
I was stunned at the end of the ninety (?) minutes when, after a dizzying array of wig and costume changes, the five, count 'em, FIVE performers came out for their bows.
I figured I counted at least eight different body types.
I repeats -- I needed that.
