Wish I Had Some Cream Pie...

Oh my. Be careful what you wish for.

Especially if you're at CBT for the 8th annual Comedy Festival.

This young lady apparently volunteered to substitute as "Charlie," a cast member of LONG PORK, an improv/skit group down from Chicago.

She obviously didn't know Charlie's lines so she's flipping through a loose-leaf script book.

Then the others came out holding cream-filled pies. Oops.

Fortunately, Charlie re-joined the cast in time to avoid a pie food fight.

SOMEBODY'S IN THE DOG HOUSE presented "Cruisin' For A Bruising'" as the opening act of the show at Charleston Ballet Theater on King Street.

These two zanies recounted their 4 MONTHS as stand-up comics aboard a cruise ship.

The passengers changed every week but they - and the rest of the crew - gradually went insane.

The ladies also interspersed sketches and improv during this show.

(My comic daughter has done this type of cruise ship gig but only for a 2-week period, once a year.)

Earlier Friday evening, Todd Barry flew down from New York to do his stand-up comedy at the Footlight Theater on Queen Street.

The packed house was becoming a little restless with a delayed start until Brandy Sullivan of The Have-Nots came onstage.

She announced that Todd's plane had been delayed but now he was "in the house."

His opening line was "I just got off a plane and really, really have to go to the bathroom. Please don't think about that."

Todd had a good funny routine and did dialog with the audience so it was worth the wait.

The late start meant having to scurry for the opening of the other show on King Street.

Not nearly as frantic as a fast drive in from the airport.

(Click twice on the photos for massive detail. Catch the 10th annual laff fest next year and LOL. Thanks for stopping by.)
