Charley here with a special announcement:
I HATE chocolate syrup. HATE IT.
What? Huh?……You want to know why? Why would I hate this wonderful ice cream condiment? Why do I hate the sweet sensation of it on your tongue as I lick it off the fingers of a hooker, or much more likely in my case, as I cry alone at night in front of a really emotional episode of “Parenthood” Tuesday’s at 10/9c on NBC? Because of one word:
Okay, let’s make that two words:
No, let’s move the “er” over:
No, I don’t think you understand, now move the other “er” to the end of the word:
You know what, I’ll just write it….SPLATTER THEATER.
For those not “in the know”, Splatter Theater is the brain child of a bunch of amazing Chicago improvisers. One night back in 1987, at Leona’s in Lakeview, they all got drunk and decided to do a Halloween show. They had two goals: make fun of all the great horror movies that were coming out at the time, while also covering the stage with blood. In one month they wrote and put up the Annoyance Theater‘s first show. It’s so fun we are still doing it 23 years later.
So if you have a Saturday night free and want to come please do! If you want to come and you want comps, call me, I get two a show. If you don’t have my number, there’s probably a reason for that.
I love you….unless you don’t have my number….there’s probably a reason for that.
