Pride Pups Present: GAYPROV June 29th in Fort Lauderdale

Posted on

Sick Puppies Comedy is pleased to announce the cast of The Pride Pups; Justin Bullard, Ryan Hanson, Nick Henriquez, Tim Krajewski, Plus Pierre-Louis, Amy Pearson-Wanberg and Stefanie Scher. Pride Pups is an improv troupe specifically built to support the LGBTQ community in Wilton Manors.  Justin Bullard, director and founder of Pride Pups presented the idea to Sick Puppies earlier this year.  It made perfect sense as The Puppies are looking to expand and Justin is looking to celebrate Pride Month in a different way..

The project is designed to be an improv show that caters to this specific market which means some of the scenes and sketches can openly address issues rarely explored in other venues.  The Empire Stage in Fort Lauderdale is a perfect space for the project as it has been the host to so many other artistic and brave shows.

Justin is using the show to raise funds for Sun Serve, a local charity that services members of the LGBTQ community in need.  Sun Serve has been gracious enough to open their office for rehearsal and audition space.

Pride Pups is a well diversified cast ready to put everything out on the table and hold nothing back.  If you are looking for “real emotion” in “real comedy”, this is the show for you.  This is a one time only event that you don’t want to miss.   $25 a ticket.  Buy Tickets Here.  Only 50 tickets left.

Empire Stage, 1140 N Flagler Dr, Fort Lauderdale

Sunday, June 29th at 8:30PM – 10 PM.

Doors open at 8PM – Advance Ticket Purchase Required. – Complimentary Wine and Beer.  Theatre Donations accepted and encouraged.

True Detective Seasons 2-6

Posted on

HBO's "True Detective" Season 1 / Director: Cary Fukunaga

HBO’s True Detective is basically one of the best shows on television right now.

Don’t believe me, Doubting Thomas? Well would you believe The Atlantic, The Daily Beast, and The Guardian?

As you can see, True Detective is the show everyone is talking about. And the craziest part is, each season features a new story and new actors. The only thing that stays the same is the genre, which follows some detectives as they solve crimes and stuff (fictional ones, ironically enough.)

This led us here at Sick Puppies to wonder. What happens if the show’s showrunner, Nic Pizzolatto, decides not to continue with the show, but HBO is unwilling to cancel it?

What will other showrunners do to spice this show up?

Aaron Sorkin

(Two detectives walk through a field. One’s a man. The other a woman.)

Man: I feel like a knight sometimes, or a cowboy. Sometimes I think I’m a knight fighting a windmill.

Woman: A windmill?

Man: A windmill.

Woman: I don’t understand.

Man: You wouldn’t. Ever see Man of La Mancha?

Woman: No.

Man (shaking head): Women.

Woman: I’m sorry. It’s just that my womanly hormones were acting up.

Man: Womanly hormones?

Woman: Womanly hormones.

Man: I remember the good ol’ days, when a man was a man and a woman was a woman and the detectives in this great nation could do their jobs well. You know what’s wrong with this country? It’s a lot of things, but mostly just women. And young people, too. They’re too womanly.

(Man 2 rushes up towards them.)

Man 2: You guys passed the body a couple minutes ago. But you just kept walking.

David E. Kelley

(Detective stands in a shoe store, looking at dead body. Dead body has three arrows in it, as well as a post-it note stuck to his forehead. The post-it note reads, “OMG”)

Detective: That’s pretty quirky.

Ryan Murphy

(That red-headed chick who always ends up dying on American Horror Story lies in a bed, dead. Jessica Lange sits on a chair, using all the acting skills she has to stare down the detective, who is played by Evan Peters.)

Evan: So, uh, this is a dead girl.

Jessica: Don’t make me drop a house on you.

Evan: What?

Jessica: I’m a witch bitch.

Evan: I don’t understand.

Jessica: The thing this coven needs is a new bed.

Evan: I feel like you’re just throwing one-liners at me, with no regard for plot or character.

(A man-bat being played by Frances Conroy crashes through the window, flying into Evan Peters and turning him into a vampire. Three Oompa-Loompas enter the stage, singing the song. One of the Oompa-Loompas is played by Leslie Jordan. Angel Bassett crawls out from under the bed.)

Angela Bassett: You in trouble now.

Whoever the Hell is Responsible for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

(There are no detectives in this scene, or in the show in general. Just two Abercrombie & Fitch models and Clark Gregg. The Abercrombie & Finch models pose for the camera. Gregg giggles incoherently, looking around.)

Clark Gregg: I’m sure there are detectives somewhere in this universe.

Lose 20 Pounds in 5 days

Posted on

You only have 5 days to make your mediocre 2013 memorable? Are you procrastinating until 2014 to start your resolutions?  Here’s a few things you can do right now to tell your friends and family “2013 was the greatest year ever”.

1.  Start a business – Seriously.  It’s cheap.  It’s like $50 to register a fictitious name with the state of Florida.  Click here to do it.  Then you can Do Business as whomever you like.  What business do you ask?  Who cares? Be in the business of you.  You know you have good ideas.  Then you can tell everyone “I started my own company last year.” People can look it up online.  Totally awesome.  I own Casperson Consulting because of this.  2009 was a rough year.

2.  Register to Run for Office – You can say “I’m running for Congress”.  Click Here to start.  It’s free to get started.

3.  Put a deposit on a Boat – You can say “I bought a boat in 2013.” Then cancel your order in 2014.  Your deposit is usually refundable.  Make sure you ask first.  The cool part is you’ll have all the paperwork and everything to post on Facebook… and pictures.

4.  Lose 20 pounds – Wanna know how to lose twenty pounds in 5 days?  Purchase roughly $40 of British currency.  Then misplace it.   “I lost 20 pounds last year.”

My point is this.  It doesn’t take much to do something memorable.  Don’t wait until 2014 to be great.  Read a book, register for classes, ask someone out on a date… if you’re single.  Get a divorce if you’re unhappy.  I’m just saying.

Much Love.
