IMG_2145

WHOOOA!  It’s almost here!  Weekend of Regret took the Inspirado stage last night for their 7th week and faced off against Chet Watkins!  The trash talk was fierce.  A sweat pance-wearing Chris Camp brought a fervor to the trash talk that has been lacking for a long time.  Nick Jaramillo, of Weekend of Regret, shot back with, “I remember when my Mom first let me wear sweat pants outside of the house…it was freeing”.  Brilliant.  HERE WE GO!

Chet Watkins took the stage first and chose the Individual Challenge and received BARGAIN BIN.  Their set had to be a monoscene  that takes place in a DVD Bargain Bin.  We were given Blade, Mission Impossible and Jaws!  All of the DVDs wanted to be picked up, in the end, they all were purchased by two very lonely friends.  Beautiful.

Weekend Of Regret took the stage next and chose the Indianapolis Challenge.  They received LENEPY!  To honor the Lenepy Indians, the first to discover the land that is now Indianapolis, each line of dialogue had to have 3 seconds of silence in between it.  Each scene was grounded and patient.  We were given scenes about stalkers, towns taken over  by dogs and peyote smoking Indians.  It was a wonderful show, one that the Lenepy Indians would be proud of.

WEEKEND OF REGRET!  They will return next week (valentine’s Day) to face off against the power couple, MEGALOU!  Who will win? Valentine’s Day Inspiradooooooo! Who is more in love?  You Decide!  11pm!  BOOM!

APRIL 19th RECAP: UPSTATE (Literally) Rubs Down CHET WATKINS For The Win!

Wow.  It was a sensual night on the Inspirado stage.  Birthdays were approaching, road head was looming and rub downs…well, we’ll get to that.  Chet Watkins had some fierce trash talk about Upstate, NY, but Upstate Team Captain Dustin Drury kept it cool saying, “My Dad’s here tonight”.  Wow…Dad is going to see some flesh!  Let’s GO!

Chet Watkins was up first and chose the Indianapolis Challenge and received The Road.  Indianapolis is home to one of the first national highways build by the U.S. Government.   Chet Watkins set needed to build to a climax in which one character was giving another character road head.  The piece began with two parents driving with their kids sleeping in the back.  One would lean over the other and come dangerously close to the others crotch, and then the kids would wake up.  Damn kids!  The piece was filled with police cracking down on ‘skeeting’ and speeding,  strict parental rules and Crabs.  The end came to a wonderful climax that no one in the audience could have seen coming.

Upstate, in their third week on the Inspirado stage chose a Physical challenge and received Massage Me.  During this piece, they had to be massaging someone from the audience at all times.  Immediately they chose a cute girl to come and massage, but she was quickly tapped out by a member of Chet Watkins.  Upstate played a multi-character scene in a massage studio between a teacher and student.  Eventually as members of Chet Watkins tapped in and out, the massage methods got more intense.  One patient got an extreme wedgie, so extreme that his underwear ripped.  Another member of Chet Watkins was forced to smell the teacher and student’s “vaginas”.  And finally, a member of Chet Watkins came on stage in nothing but his boxers.  He got the full treatment, a leg massage, tickle torture and eventually a pile on (it’s a very exotic massage technique).  The audience loved the whole show; it was almost as if the entire audience was getting a massage, just in a different area, their bellies (I feel like there should be a cute emoticon here…I am fighting the uuuurge… ;)  Sorry)

Upstate does it again!  They will be returning next week to take on the powerhouse, Theory of Everything!  Will Upstate be able to feel their way through this show, or will Theory take their time dismantling the current Inspirado Champions?  You decide, Thursday at 11pm….IIINNNSSPIIIRRADDDDOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

PREVIEW: CHET WATKINS Calls UPSTATE, NY The Worst Place In The World!

August 25th RECAP: CHET WATKINS Bows Down To BRICK!

In an Inspirado show that created the most trash talk the internet has ever seen, only one team was left standing, BRICK.  Brick team captain, Rick Andrews, put it perfectly, I have ONE THING TO SAY TO YOU WET TWATKINS…Let’s start this thing!

First up, Chet Watkins chose a dumb challenge and received Dwama; they were challenged to be 5 serious actors performing a drama written by Mrs. Hunt’s 2nd grade class.  What unraveled was a rivalry between Mr. Doo Doo Head and Mr. Pee Pee Face, two people who met at the Poo Poo River.  The piece was filled with lessons about tolerance, sharing and farting in public.  Construction paper was used and imaginary friends were abused but in the end it would be Mr. Doo Doo Head and Mr. Pee Pee Face who would put aside their differences and get married.  It was a real tear jerker which was immediately followed by a fart.

In their 6th week on the Inspirado stage, Brick chose an artsy challenge and received Coolio.  August marks the 48th birthday of Coolio, the rapper made popular from such hits and “1,2,3,4” and “Gansta’s Paradise”; their challenge was to perform a piece in 4 parts and it had to take place in a “Gangsta’s Paradise”.  Part 1, was a Gangsta who lived in a mansion with regenerating meat, fat blunts and attractive women who told jokes.  Part 2, was a CPA in a blinged out prison cell who was allergic to Chrystal and loved Bob Seger. Part 3, was a senile mother who couldn’t enjoy her riches and Part 4 was a music video called, “Put Your Dick In Here”.  All 4 parts were different paradises for different Gangsters; Coolio would have been proud.

In  the closest Inspirado match of August, Brick stood tall once again with The Dale North Memorial Trophy nuzzled in their bosom.  As Brick prepares for their 7th week on the Inspirado stage, one has to wonder, can anyone stop them at this point?  Will Barker, Simpson, Jones LLC be able to slow down the enormous momentum of BRICK, or will they be steam rolled like everyone else?  Find out next week at 11pm at INSPIRADOOO!!!!!!

CHET WATKINS: “Enough Is Enough, TIME FOR [BRICK] TO LOSE!”

Thursday August 25th marks the 197th anniversary of the British storming Washington D.C. The War of 1812 was not a pretty one, it was dirty and ruthless, but in the end the winner prevailed…America.  Chet Watkins has likened themselves to America this week as they prepare for what wil be “the greatest improv showdown EVER.”  Chet Watkins is made up of Chris Camp, Kelly Kreye, Christian Paluck, Lizzie Redner, Jana Schmieding, and Laura Grey.  Their absurdly grounded style of play will be a great challenge for the current Inspirado champions BRICK.

Is this an improv match made in heaven?

With the help of Armando Diaz last week, Brick was able to defeat Dunk; but without Armando, will they have what it takes to conquer Chet Watkins??!!  Whatever the outcome, this promises to be one hell of a battle.  Thursday night at 11pm...INSPIRADDDOOOOOO!!!
