Extra! Extra! The Gun Show Sells Out!

•March 14, 2010 • Leave a Comment

No, we haven’t made a deal with GE to plug microwave ovens in our show… yet.  (Call me, Alec Baldwin.)  But this Friday, we sold out the theater!  Wow!!  So big thanks to everyone who came to see the show on Friday!  We had a great time doing it, and we hope you had an equally great time watching it.  This is from all of The Gun Show to all of you fabulous people out there!

Hey! No tongue!

This is great news for us hams because the more people who laugh with (at) us, the better we feel about ourselves and the more distorted our sense of our own greatness becomes.  (Call me, Alec Baldwin.)

We’ve got one more show in this run, this Friday!  If this last show is any indicator, I recommend buying your tickets early online!  Oh, and Alec Baldwin — call me!

XOXO,

Holla: International Women’s Day!

•March 10, 2010 • Leave a Comment

So, I didn’t know it until I found out from the lovely ladies of LUPEC, but yesterday was international women’s day!  So I just figured that we here at The Gun Show should take the time to give a big shout out to some of the women who have blazed a path of comedy before us.

Ms. Lucille Ball - "“I'm not funny. What I am is brave.”

Gracie Allen - “When I was born I was so surprised I didn't talk for a year and a half.”

Elaine May - " The only thing experience teaches you is what you can't do. When you start, you think you can do anything. And then you start to get a little tired."

And countless others, who are blazing a trail even today — Carol Burnett, Ellen Degeneres, Roseanne Barr, Tina Fey, Whoopi Goldberg, Janeane Garofalo, to name just a few.  Thank you, ladies.  We salute you.

P.S.

Thanks to everyone who came to see our show on Friday.  For those of you who haven’t yet seen it, the show runs for the next 2 Fridays at ImprovBoston. Check it out!

Ink

So, we were at the bar the other day, having a beer, and the subject of tattoos came up.  Being a gang of tough ladies, a number of us, including Mo, have a little ink.  Jackie has some kickass nautical tattoos because she spent a lot of time around tallships (explains her language).  Claudette has a bird representing her Jamaican heritage, among other things.  Mo has “Esperanza” tattooed on her lower back.  I don’t know what it means, but it’s beautiful.

Feeling a bit insecure about my own lack of body modification,  I headed down to the tattoo parlor.  They had a suggestion:

Are you ready for March?  I am!

P.S.

Because I am a HORRIBLE person, I totally failed to point out that yesterday was Laura, our head writer’s, BIRTHDAY!!!  Holy crap she’s old!  Wish her a happy birthday with me!

You guys.  We have been so busy.  Like soooo busy.

Firstly, I am thrilled to announce that there’s a new Gun in town!  Claudette “Hot Glock” Dawes, known for her fantastic work with The Latchkey Kids, is the most recent addition to our bitchin’ little family.  Claudette will be performing with us in our upcoming run at ImprovBoston.  What?  You FORGOT we were having a show??  Well, we are!  And you should be there!  March 5, 12, and 17!

Today, we finished up shooting video with the incomparable Ms. Mo Masterson for one of our fabulous sketches for said run.  We wish we could put it up here for all of you to see, but it’s not ready yet.  So for now, we’re withholding sketch.
