THIS FRIDAY!

Said before, say it again: I am proud of this show. It wasn’t my idea. I don’t book the scientist. Honestly, I just show up and do improv with TYR… so my part is so easy. But in a sea of hundreds of improv shows, I am over joyed to be part of one that feels very unique.
I also think TYR is doing some our best stuff st this show. After 7+ years, it’s like we found our thing. And I want to share it.
This show on Friday is particularly exciting because I am super curious to see what THE MANNEQUIN ROOM does with their science talk. I’ve talked before them before and I bet their particular style will be pretty mindblowing at this show.

"Eagle Rock" - Daddy Cool (1971)

Magic of the internet is that one can suddenly be hit with a though like “You know, I have no idea what Elton John’s “Crocodile Rock” is actually about” and then go look it up.

This song was apparently John’s inspiration. Daddy Cool was an Australian and “Eagle Rock” was the most successful Australian single in the early 70s.

Also, I am pretty sure I’ve coached this improv team.
