Checked out @paulscheer at UBC and saw a test run of some new Flight of the Concords material. I have no more laughs in me.

I love their stealth appearances! Image And the fact that the Orchestra's with them again! :yawinkle: :D

Yep, I hope the guy who heard the new material knows them well. Perhaps they even told the crowd they were doing new stuff. 8)

Thanks, Ami!

:cry: :cry: :cry:

I need someone to kick my ass immediately. UCB Theatre is my favorite place to see comedy in LA. The theatre is so small! My sister got called to work in the American Apparel in Los Feliz last night and I was thinking about hitching a ride with her and hanging out, maybe grabbing a bite to eat and walking over to UCB to catch a show since it's nearby.

:doh:

We're kind of spoiled in LA, aren't we? I was under the impression that they were in Europe too.

According to the tweets, they only played a three song mini set. But still, talk about an intimate performance! The room is about the size of two bedrooms put together. I estimate that there are about 150 seats but they always cram people in there. I was hoping they would play a secret show like this in LA around Hollywood Bowl time, either at UCB Theatre or Largo at the Coronet.
