Jan. 26th RECAP: In One Night, LEVIATHAN Takes Down FNS & THE WRATH!


It was a fiery night on the Inspirado stage!  At the top of the show, The Wrath and The Friday Night Sh*w were called up onto the stage.  But after the confusion cleared, it would be announced that Leviathan actually won last weeks Inspirado.  “Yea, but they’re NOT here!” screamed FNS Team Captain Russ Armstrong…then…from a mist, almost out of nowhere…in walked…LEVIATHAN! They defaced FNS ‘s Duane Reade sign and took the stage.  Victory had been served!  After some intense trash talk, Leviathan chose to go second and The Wrath took the stage!

The Wrath chose a Random challenge and received Tony Mui, their entire set had to be inspired by Tony Mui’s facebook page.  After scrolling though and seeing comments from Jamaal Sedayo, videos from “rave-like” concerts and posts about Tony’s cilantro farm, The Wrath was ready!  There were scenes about Jamaal & Tony, Tony & Julia Hynes, tony kidnapping orphan kids & Jamaal ‘liking’ it.  In one scene, Jamaal and Julia were in a Tony Mui torture chamber, in which we later learn, at a Brick rehearsal, they were both killed.  In the end it would be a Tony Mui buffett, the winner?  The audience.

Leviathan took the stage for the second week in a row and picked a Stylistic challenge and received Occupy Magnet.  Their set had to be in the style of a protest.  Immediately we saw a drum circle with Hackey Sack, Leaf & Arnold.  Their was an old fat cat looking down on them shouting out, “Get away you filthy hippies”.  Their were poetic dances, people quitting their jobs and a cop who didn’t want any trouble.  In the end, a father and a son re-united and America was better for it.

By the end of the night, Leviathan was declared the winner of not only one but two teams!  They gloriously held The Dale North Memorial Chotchkies high in the air and pledged to prepare for next week!  BEEES! will be taking the stage next week.  Will Leviathan destroy their nest?  Or will BEEES! bring a bite that will take down the new Inspirado champions?  You decide, next week on Feb. 2nd at INNSPPPIRRADDOOO!!

PREVIEW: The Wrath Plans To De-Throne New Champions!


It’s a Megawatt showdown this Thursday at Inspirado!  The Wrath is coming to the stage to challenge the new Inspirado champions!  Their strategy?   Soft, grounded scenes that make the audience swoon over their overbearing grip on comedy.  The Wrath is Brian Bockrath, Rob Cuthill, Michael Kroll, Scott Lawrie, Rob Penty, Charlotte Rabbe, Ross Taylor and Andrew Yurman-Glaser.

Will they be able to strong arm the controversial Inspirado champions, Leviathan?   Or will Leviathan pass the test just like last week?  You find out, thursday at 11pm at INNNNNSSSPPIRADO!!



Bush v. Gore, 2000.  Romney v. Santorum, 2012.  Add to the list: Leviathan vs. Friday Night Sh*w.

Wow.  Math is hard. Friday Night Sh*w. Leviathan. Both teams had amazing sets.  At the end of the show, after the hurried lobby count, The Friday Night Sh*w were declared the winners by slimmest margin.  However, when all the votes were re-tallied, in the first ever Inspirado match decided in a recount, it would Leviathan would be declared the winners of this match, in what would be deemed “the most anti-climactic win in Inspirado history.”  How did this happen?  Keep reading.

Leviathan chose a Nerdy challenge and received “Math Test”, they had to perform a mono-scene in which they completed and passed an actual math test.  What came next was a group of 8 students who made a pact to cheat on a math test together.  There was a blood oath, implied affairs with teachers, suggestions of an orgy, and many smart kids playing “outside the window” who seemed to know all the answers.  In the end, they all passed by getting the same score of 74 and no one showed their work.

The Friday Night Sh*w, in the 7th week on the Inspirado stage, chose an Artsy challenge and received “Golden Era”, their challenge was to do a silent film.  The piece started with a man leaving his dog with a man on the bench.  The man on the bench eventually became evil and killed the dog (why didn’t Chaplin do that?).  There were love stories, child mishaps and large man-eating flowers.  The slapstick comedy was easy to follow and extremely enjoyable.  Their was a man who was stripped completely, and later came on stage naked.  Yes naked.  In the end it would be a hilarious short that would rival any silent film.

The night was loud and the votes were tallied and in a very close win, Friday Night Sh*w was declared the winners.  But then, after a closer look, it would be Leviathan who would be deemed Inspirado champions.  This match was so close, a mis-calculation here and there decided it all.  Ironic, considering Leviathan‘s challenge.

WOW.  New Inspirado champions Leviathan will return next week after knocking the 6 time Inspirado winner off of their perch and back to their Friday Night slot.  They’ll face fellow upstart Megawatt powerhouse The Wrath!  Fresh blood for the fresh faces, who will win?!? Find out next week at INSPIRADOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.


SO strong! SO sensual! SO LEVIATHAN!

Leviathan, the sweet Megawatt team, isn’t planning on being too sweet this Thursday.  The Magnet newbies plan to give  the current 6-time Inspirado champions a run for their money in what can only be described as “the show of all shows!”  Leviathan is made up of Kevin Kiernan, Alexis Lambright, David Levin, Michael Lutton, Maggie Morris, Vince Milosevich, Rachel Rauch, and Rachel Werbel.

Will The Friday Night Sh*w be able to continue their streak, will they crumple like the Green Bay Packers?  Or will they continue their epic journey to the OH SHIT! challenge!  It’s all up to you.  Thursday, 11pm.  INNNNSSSPPPIIIRRADDDOOOOOOO!!!!!

January 12th RECAP: O, WHAT THOU DAREST TO DO! FNS Gets One Step Closer to OH SH*T!

Our First Double Sponsored Show!

All the world’s a stage at Inspirado!  The night was filled with The Bard, sponsors and Super Bowl highlights.  The show started off with Featherweight– the first team to ever perform in Inspirado- presenting their new non-corporate sponsor, “Ye Olde Mom  And Pop, The One Stop, Shopping Clocks And Frocks, For Mom and Pops”.  Friday Night Sh*w was sponsored, as usual, by Duane Reade.  FNS decided to go second, so Featherweight and their ( long winded) non-corporate sponsor took the stage!

BOOM! Featherweight chose the Indianapolis challenge (the least picked challenge) and received Super Bowl.  In just a few weeks, the 46th annual Super Bowl will be held in Indianapolis, IN, and two teams will face off.  The challenge was to perform a mono-scene in the locker room of the losing team at half-time.  They were currently down by 56 points.  Immediately, we were given the delusional but hopeful players of the Pennsylvania Bulldogs.   They wouldn’t let the custodian Brian take their “winning” t-shirts and champagne.  BOOM!  The coach was too busy enjoying the U2 half-time show, proclaiming, “you should get out there, they’re great!”.  Their plan was to pull a “Huck Finn” in order to win super bowl rings; “seriously, we’re not going to steal them…we were…but now we want to win them.”  In the end, they threw up a hail marry… and only lost by 49 points- well done Bulldogs. BOOM!

The 5 time Inspirado champions, The Friday Night Sh*w, took the stage next and chose a Stylistic challenge.  Their challenge was called The Bard; they had to perform an early lost work from William Shakespeare.  We were given the story of an unruly king, who loves to kill messengers.  The king was married to a brute Queen, who loved to speak in sexual verse.  In his kingdom, lived a wench and a popper who were madly in love, “oh to be the pant that wraps around this leg!”  Eventually, the wench was sent to war  and when the pauper learned of this, he got in her suit of armor and went away with her.  In the end, they both die- as well as the king, and the queen…the only one left standing was the messenger proclaiming, “oh, I should really tell someone about this”.

FNS hath claimed another victory!  Can it be true!  They are now 6 time Inspirado champions…does this mean they will go all the way?  If they complete two more challenges, they will indeed be in line for the infamous Oh Sh*t! challenge.  But they have two more teams to get through first.  Next week, the new Megawatt team Leviathan stands up against the powerhouse FNS.  Will Leviathan knock down the current champions or will Leviathan be run over by a team with more momentum than Mitt Romney.  You be the judge.  Next week at 11pm.  INSPIRADOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

PREVIEW: Featherweight- The First Team To Ever Perform In Inspirado- RETURNS!

A Re-Match Is In Order!

Will they be able to defeat the current Inspirado champions?   Or will FNS come one step closer to the OH SHIT! challenge?  It’s going to be a huge show- this Thursdsay at 11pm- INSPPPIRRADDDDOOOOO!!!!!!!
