It was another barn burner at good ole Inspirado, as Megawatt darlings Metal Boy took down hip hop improv troupe Robopop.
Pat May started things off for trash talk as he pointed out how there were two people who came forward to trash talk for Robopop while Metal Boy only needed the one. He also commented on how Robopop’s beatboxer had tested the mic pre-show and Metal Boy had no need for mics. Annemarie Cullen cut back by saying that everyone on Robopop was casually sleeping with the members of Metal Boy and, because they wanted to continue this torrid affair, she would not trash talk the team.
Then the improv began!
Robopop started things off by selecting the Physical challenge of It Takes all Kinds: Every character in each of your scenes is of radically different sizes. They received the suggestion of Tampon, and boy howdy were there some tampons in this show! We started off with an opening number about bathroom attendants, super sized tampons and fat guys in the ladies room. Then we met Delores and her mother who were sitting in adjacent stalls. Delores had some questions about sex that her mother addressed in a rap that covered the baisics, how Delores was little and her mom was big, and how Delores’ father had to hold up his wife’s fat folds in order to do her. Then we cut to underneath a giant bed. And by gosh o’golly was there a lot under that bed; poison darts, a river, and a bathroom attendant. Then there was the obligatory Narnia rap. Which covered how Narnia was a sensual dimension and lovely, lovely Turkish delight. We saw some other highlights throughout the night, a young boy getting a boner for the first time accompanied by his talking dick, an Adams’ Family rap, and a very tumultuous bathroom attendants meeting. The set ended with a brief look into what it would look like if the towel guy from the bathroom played Santa Claus in the mall.
Then Metal Boy took the stage!
After a bit of a tense, and rather long, challenge picking, mostly due to some insulting language and confusion from host Ali Fisher, Metal Boy chose the Dumb challenge of Where Are We Supposed to Meet Again? – Your set is in the style of a group email thread in which no one is communicating well or paying attention to important details. They received the suggestion of Barbie Girl which they basically ignored. We saw a group of folks sitting around sending each other emails trying to organize a rehearsal for a dance competition that was in four days! However, this group could just not focus, they kept getting side tracked by puppy videos, vines, being away from home, and being bloated. We then jumped away to a Taco Bell where Eli refused to admit that he had been to this same Taco Bell earlier in the day. We then went to a sperm bank where three men were forced to masturbate into the same cup at the same time, which of course generated the obligatory discussion of ookie cookie (which I will not explain here but feel free to check out this urban dictionary description NSFW). While the men were masturbating, Nolan, who was a watching nurse, found out his father had died. THEN! we saw Carly preparing by herself for the dance competition which led to the revelation that her brother had been the first person to get a woman pregnant in space. We saw this acted out with the most handsome member of Metal Boy portraying the zero gravity sperm. We saw a lot more fun stuff from sweet sweet MB, including, a zombie art piece, a discussion of the new Goyte song, and a 40 year old man doing the Macarena. The set ended with Eli back a Taco Bell still denying his previous attendance.
When all was said and done Metal Boy won in a squeeker and will return next week the take on Ariana Grande in the ultimate Megawatt showdown. See ya’ll there, only at 11pm, only at the Magnet Theater, only at IIIIIIIINNNNNNNNSSSSSSSSPPPPPPPPPIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAADDDDDDDOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
