For detailed directions, visit the Galapagos site. Unless you practically live there already, hipster. In that case, have another PBR and stay cool. I like your Frohawk, dude.
p.s. - Second or third to last show before I pop, man. Come see if I have the baby on stage!
UPDATE: Character Recap!
Shawn and Jenny (when she got there from her show at Pete's Candy Store) were great hosting as BrYan and Rexxx. Those guys have been everywhere! I wish I was as famous here as they are in South Russia. Collars up!
Lianne was fantastic as Toni - teaching us all that working at Enterprise Rent-a-Car does not cover the cost of being fabulous and that she is the prettiest slut in Long Island. "You know, Maria Finocchio, the dental hygienist with the googlie eye?" Love her.
Allen did three hilarious characters doing stand-up: Eli the Southern comic, Jamie the insane sexist-machismo comic and Elaine, who was angry and frizzy at the same time. So funny!
Laura's Dara Schwartzenstein from 72nd and Park was awesome - she knows way too much for a sixteen year old. I can't believe she didn't know Manhattan had bridges going out. I mean, she knew, but she didn't KNOW, you know?
Michael Stipe visited us randomly in the middle of the show to give us some good old fashioned Wok-n-Roll. If you believe, then put some bran on Theron's spoon - he deserves it! That spasm at the end was hard core good stuff.
Sara Schaefer was too funny as Patricia (Pa-tree-shuh)! She reads the New Yorker, New York, the New York Times, the New York Post, the New York Sun - and she feels sorry for black people. Priceless.
And lastly, Nick Kroll was hysterical as the 6th member of Ace of Base trying to sell Julio Iglesias records and baby sunglasses for another hit of Crystal Meth. I think "I'm going to cut your ass off and fill it with hate" coupled with "I feel like an old omlette" are the two funniest things I've ever heard in one sitting.
Thank you to everyone who did the show - I haven't had that much fun in almost a week! ;) I'm so lucky I get to laugh all the time. My kid's not gonna cry to clear her lungs - she's gonna point at the nurse and start guffawing.
