FUNNIEST GAME DONE IN PRACTICE:
1-3-Soliloquy (like 1-3-5, only the "5"
person has to perform a soliloquy. It was great, because the "1" and "3"
people always bailed out and left the soliloquy giver with absolutely
nothing to work with. And yet, it always cracked everybody up.
FUNNIEST GAME PERFORMED ON STAGE:
Forward/Reverse - A parody of the Rice U.
Administration's takeover of K-TRU - I played a disgruntled student
shouting at Dr. Camacho and Colonel Sanders. (Dave Urban played the
Colonel.) My only two lines were, "Dr. Camacho, I'm a disgruntled student
and I'm really PISSED at you!!" and (to Colonel Sanders), "You and your
extra-tasty-crispy-chicken are ENEMIES OF ART!" Nathan had me repeat that
like 50 times. It was great. Also, another great moment was during the
Booze-versus-Yoo Hoos show, when I had to pantomime "a dildo shaped like
BIGGEST INSIDE JOKE:
I don't think I was ever in on any inside jokes. Does
Eric Libby's "Better than a Smegma Milkshake" count?
ANYTHING ELSE FUNNY! TELL STORIES! RELIVE MEMORIES!
I tried out for the
first time my junior year, but I didn't make it in because a few of the
female members thought I was sexist. (During the tryout, we'd been playing
"World's Worst," and the topic was "World's Worst Father in Law," and I
stepped up and said, with a lascivious leer, as if speaking to my
"son-in-law," : "So...heh hehe...how is she?" (The joke being, the world's
worst father in law wants to hear about how incredible his daughter is in
the sack.) There were probably some other things that led to my not
getting in, but I don't remember what they might have been. Everyone
thought I looked like Conan O'Brien. I still get that a lot.
