Loaded Guns: the aftermath


Srsly, you guys, Loaded Guns: America FTW! went even better than we could have dreamed. We sold out the whole weekend, which is a FIRST for us! We usually do pretty well but we’ve never been standing room only for an entire weekend. A lot of new cast members equaled a lot of new audience members, and they really seemed to enjoy themselves even though they had no idea what to expect. AND we’ve been getting so many compliments on the show itself! People said it was their favorite show yet, that it got better and better the more you thought about it, that it was smart, witty, and funny, and that they’d never seen anything like it. We just can’t get over how great the response has been. This is just what we were looking for when we decided to dig back into our comedy roots and do another zany, crazy comedy with a huge cast–it’s just a fun, electrifying feeling that can’t be equaled by anything else, and clearly it’s your favorite thing that we do.

The only thing that REALLY sucked is that our friend and one of our new cast members, Evelyn Danielle Butler, got super sick on Saturday and wasn’t able to finish out the run with us. That was a major bummer because she is awesome. Those of you who saw the show on Friday, you’re lucky!! You got to witness her awesome in action. We missed you, Evelyn! Hope you’re feeling 100% better!

We learned a whole lot during our research for writing this show, and in an effort to retain some of that learnin’, I want to share some of that information with you, because it was really interesting and we didn’t get to fit everything in that we wanted to because then the play would have been…let’s see…518 years long. Oh well. Anyway, be looking for some well-written and insightful posts about Edward Bernays, the RAND Corporation, the Libertarian Floating Castle, Ida McKinley, Baron von Steuben, and more. I personally am very much looking forward to writing these posts so I hope you’re also looking forward to reading them. Trust me, they might sound academic but you know I’ll throw in a curse word here and there to make sure you’re paying attention.

Thanks to everyone who made it out this weekend! If you didn’t, that’s cool; it’s your loss and you should have been there.
Don’t look at me like that.
I said, don’t look at me like–
Fine. FINE! I shouldn’t give this to you, but I will. Here is a link to a bunch of photos that our friend Eddie Ray took, and below is video Eddie took of some of the dance numbers. I also uploaded one of the sketches we filmed called Squaw Swap; we’ll be putting ALL of the show up on our YouTube channel as time permits, and this is the first thing that made it on there. YOU’RE WELCOME. I hope you enjoy! Check back later for more video or like us on Facebook!

So, what’s next, you say? When are we performing next? What show are we doing? What about cakesit? I CAN’T HEAR YOU!! LALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALALA!!!

Lemme get back to you on that….
