Schtick or Treat 2010

The Halloween fun continues! Halloween is like my Christmas. I want to celebrate it all month long and ignorantly wish good tidings to the people who don't observe it.

For the 3rd Annual Schtick or Treat I am deciding AGAINST shaving my head and wearing dude clothes as Robert Schimmel and instead am buying a ponytail weave and wearing dude clothes so I can impersonate Sarah Silverman. To prepare, I have read her new book The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption and Pee, and I will re-live the magic of "Jesus Is Magic" by watching clips of that on YouTube (since someone has borrowed my dvd copy). Ultimately, I will look like Sade, sound like Downtown Julie Brown, and be gone in 2 minutes. But do you expect anything LESS than butt-tingling entertainment from this smooth operator?

Be There or Be Scared!

Tonight is The Living Room Show's 5th Annual Halloween Scare-avaganza!

Let's look at years past...

In 2006 I made the topical choice of going as US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Luke went as James Brolin as Pee-Wee Herman. Since these are so obscure, I'll give you their actual likeness.

NAILED IT. The only other person to dress up was my sister who went as Condoleezza's lesser-known sister, Condosleezza with a mullet wig and fishnet stockings, because my family is awesome.

In 2007 I went as a cabbage patch (the black one with blond hair that never sold well) and Luke went as John McEnroe. That year, the baristas joined in the costume fun and the one audience member who dressed up won a prize!

In 2008 I returned to celebrity impersonations and went as Kathy Griffin. I have no idea what Luke was supposed to be. But what a phantom-tastic turnout of costumed creeps! Comics and audience dressed up and were given prestigious awards.

In 2009 I held down the fort solo and took all the pics (which explains why they're not uploaded one year later). I dressed as a victim of the Bubonic Plague. Had the Elizabethan dress and wig, zombie facepaint and the creepiness was exacerbated by the fact that NO ONE ELSE DRESSED FOR HALLOWEEN.

So let's do this fifth one right! Oh yes, there WILL be prizes.

Late Night Republic

There's a fun show that I got to be a part of recently called Late Night Republic. It's hosted by comedy boy wonder-turned-man wonder Jake Sasseville and features lots of NYC's top funny talent*. I contributed as an on-the-street correspondent. Despite the serious Ann Curry face I have when asking questions, I giggled a lot that day.

My segment is at 9:35-11:00, sandwiched between two hilarious bits by Giulia Rozzi and Katina Corrao. (Both funny females have been on The Living Room Show and Positively Awesome, and Giulia was a part of the first lineup for the return of Ladybits, my three favorite shows in the city. For more details on them there thangs click to the right. )

I went apple-picking with my husband recently.

We ate all the apples we picked so we only had to pay for one when we checked out. What? They WANT you to do this!

There was a lovely couple selling pumpkins but they weren't coordinated enough to hand mine to me, so I left it there. They probably couldn't count my change anyway.
