Turkey remembered

So we're back from Thanksgiving...did you have a good one? We sure did:

Alex carved the turkey for the first time ever as his father broke his leg the night before. Alex has been waiting for the chance to carve for years, many thanks to God for the opportunity!

Chris hung out with his girlfriend where they "did it" for four days across two states (New York and Connecticut). They had Thanksgiving dinner at Uncle George's, a Greek place in Astoria. Did you know Astoria has at least one Greek restaurant?

Jaime enjoyed her dad's oyster stuffing. Unfortunately, Jaime's baby did not enjoy the oyster stuffing.

Katherine had a very British Thanksgiving that almost got nasty when her mum announced that she made Texas Potatoes instead of Mashed Potatoes this year. She also had the embarrassing pleasure of beating her parents at Scrabble with the word "Orgasm."*

Shayna made Brown Butter and Sage Mashed Potatoes and a fool of herself thanks to Johnny Walker Black. She also has absolutely no recollection of calling Katherine around 11pm that night and leaving a drunken message about losing the family poker game. She also used her leftover fried turkey oil as lubricant, or so her husband tells us. Oops!

* Not entirely true. Her mom put down the word "orgasm" and Katherine added "ic" at the end for the triple word score.**

** Not true at all.

Baby on board

We don't know if we'll be making sketch comedy history or not, but it's worth noting that our upcoming show will feature a six-month pregnant Jaime. Can sketch comedy be done with a bun in the oven? Can we still be funny? Will the baby pull focus? Will the baby make a cameo?

Of more importance, will Fearsome win The Sketch Comedy Royal Rumble? On Monday we go head to head with some of the best sketch groups in the city, including some of our faves Elephant Larry, Harvard Sailing Team, Derrick, Hammerkatz, and other talented groups. This is a great opportunity to see a variety of the great NYC sketch scene.

Sketch Comedy Royal Rumble
Monday, November 20th
NYU - Eisner and Lubin Auditorium
Kimmel Center - 4th Floor
Washington Square South

I think it's free admission as well. Call 212-998-4949 for more information.

Fearsome is going to Hollywood!

Or rather, Fearsome just returned from Hollywood. We were thrilled to make our L.A. debut at the L.A. Fest of Sketch Comedy. It was almost a full reunion for us as the recently departed Dan made the trek out from Arizona to join in. Unfortunately, a very pregnant Jaime could not make the trip, but she thoughtfully sent us a giant Abby Go treat:

Thanks Jaime, it was delicious!

The shows were great and were well received by enthusiastic audiences including many industry. We were even approached about starring in a reality series...about Fearsome!

Extra special thanks to Shay's friend Rob who not only did our tech but housed us at his beautiful home in Laurel Canyon, complete with a 25 person hot tub. He also didn't complain after one of us slammed his hand in a car door. I don't want to incriminate anyone, but I will say it wasn't Dan, Chris, Katherine or Shayna who did the slamming. And of course, it wasn't Jaime.

Now we're back in New York and working out details regarding all of our new business, all while creating new videos and sketches for you good people. It was a great trip...and we only had to sell one soul:

Enjoy that "beer," Chris!
